Annie Moore is an award-winning illustrator, graphic designer, painter, and art teacher. Annie trained at the California College of Art, and at the University of California, Berkeley in the 1970's. She taught art and writing in international schools in six different countries before returning to Woodstock, Vermont in 2019. In 2018 she taught Process Painting classes at Sweettree Arts Center in Hope, Maine and in Vermont in 2019 and 2020, she has taught classes at Fletcher Farm School of Arts and Crafts in Ludlow; SafeArt in Chelsea; GRACE Community Arts in Hardwick, and at Artistree Arts Center in South Pomfret, Vermont. In 2022 Annie will begin offering classes in St. Ives, Cornwall, UK where she has relocated.
When she was 21, Annie won the Best in the West award for advertising art for a Rodeo poster she created for the Albers Feed company. Her design was used as the inspiration for the Marlboro Man advertising. But, even with apparent talent and training, the best of us can experience a painters' block. Annie discovered her own personal release from that block after learning a form of art therapy known as "Process Painting". This technique completely unblocked Annie in one day from the years of inability to allow her inner painter to come through. She has developed her unique instructional techniques for Painting Heart and Soul based on that Process Painting model.
