Aris Moore

Aris Moore lives and works in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. She can often be found drawing in local coffee shops. Her work explores contradictions of strength and vulnerability, and attraction and repulsion, to create beings that are simultaneously awkward and unbelievable, yet familiar. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and has been included in several publications including New American Paintings and The Creative Block. When she is not drawing she is spending time with her seventeen year old twins, August and Owen and their very talkative cat Theo.
