Bethany Moore is a visual artist and tutor who is passionate about drawing nature and loves to teach. Fascinated by the quiet contemplation of still-life studies, she enjoys the process of observing, drawing and painting her various subjects. She loves to share these mindful drawing techniques with others and travels to art groups and corporate venues around the country to discuss and teach traditional observational drawing methods.

Bethany enjoys working in oil paints, pastels and pencils on paper and canvas from her purpose-built studio on the Isle Of Wight. In 2017 she founded the Cowes Library Drawing Group , to encourage observational drawing skills and techniques. She is a member of the IW Creative Network.

Whilst other artists paint ‘beautiful’ people or ‘beautiful’ landscapes, I enjoy finding the beauty in interesting and unusual items through pattern, colour, shape and form. From old keys to dappled light; from portraiture to print-making, I love to slow down the observation process and select different materials to capture the essence of my subject.
