About Connie Mae Moeller

I create oil paintings that celebrate my love of nature transporting the viewer into the to the peace that nature offers. My paintings have won awards, been accepted into several juried shows, and have been purchased by several private collectors across the country. I care deeply about my community and have served on my local council for the arts, contribute to educational art programs, and have worked on public art projects. I sell my original oil paintings and reproductions in galleries and other venues and through my online store, and I also take commissions.

Biography

I create oil paintings that celebrate my love of nature. My work transports the viewer into the scene to experience the peace that nature offers. Influenced at a young age by artists such as Asher B. Durand and Andrew Wyeth, my style unites the spirit I sense in each place with the joy I find in each detail. Working from my experiences in nature, I enjoy painting en plein air (on location outdoors) and also use photos for reference when painting in my studio. After studying the old masters, my technique generally begins with an underpainting, then builds with color and glazes. I grew up hiking in Michigan’s woods, drawing and painting from my experiences. I majored in fine art at Spring Arbor University and received additional education at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. Since moving to West Virginia in 2012, I enjoy the state‚Äôs wild and wonderful outdoors and have a studio in my home in Morgantown. My paintings have won awards, been accepted into several juried shows, and have been purchased by several private collectors across the country. I care deeply about my community and have served on my local council for the arts and contribute to educational art programs. My professional memberships include Tamarack: The Best of WV and Allied Artists of WV.
