received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University and her Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she concentrated on sculpture, design, and collaborative work with a focus on socially and environmentally responsible projects.
Whether through larger community or environmental projects, or through sculpture, photography, drawings, and video, Moore explores the complexity of relationships within cultures and subcultures, and within the environment, both built and natural, as affected by human activity.
She is a co-founder of Spoke, an exhibition and event space in Chicago (2008-2011), and was a Fulbright Fellow in Greece (2009-2010). In 2012 Moore received a Creation Grant, funded by the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, and received a Full Fellowship Award to attend the Vermont Studio Center as a resident artist. In 2014 Moore was a John H. Hauberg Fellow
at Pilchuck Glass School.
