Barbara J Moore is a Tucson based artist who has a multimedia background. In her youth drawing was her first love and a gateway to other art mediums. She is a graduate of Arizona State University in Studio Art and has been pursuing her art and her niche ever since. Over time she has had interests in various mediums including but not limited to oil painting, watercolor, and mixed media. She has owned a business as a mural and faux artist and is currently an art teacher. Photography became an interest in college and she intermittently explored it. Sepia photography began as a mild interest in 2010 and in 2020 returned to it studying its possibilities with a deeper commitment.

Barbara sees sepia photography as a natural extension of her drawing roots. Dark and light contrasts subtly and dramatically run through her work. In architectural ruins and in the drama of landscape she finds her imagery. These images are personal moments that she wants to share. Color is a tantalizing feature in photography, however, Barbara is drawn to use sepia. In sepia tones an image is stripped down to its essence, into what she sees as a more meditative quality. These images are everyday moments and captures of her travels. Travel is a great love of hers. Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Kentucky and Ireland are places she has captured but the southwest holds her heart. Ultimately, Barbara is inviting the viewer to see the moment, and embrace the beauty, and find their own interpretation of her work.
