Though coming back to it later in life, Moira has developed a real passion for sculpture which has transformed her life since she established her studio in Purbeck in 2008. Moira is a figurative sculptor working largely from life to capture the essential vitality and warmth of the figure whether the pose is restful or dynamic. Moira’s focus is studying the surfaces and movement in the human form but whether sculpting animals or humans her aim is sculpture that radiates a feeling of living energy. A large part of her work portrays the softness of the female form, but also includes male sculptures with stronger muscle tone and textures. Moira has also always loved music and dance and has really enjoyed working on sculptures based on flamenco, ballet and the Argentine Tango. She has found it fascinating to observe the impact of movement on the body and to try and capture that feeling of the figure being in transition. Moira has exhibited in exhibitions in London annually since 2009 and was thrilled to be elected as a member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) in 2014.
