Carol Moore was born in Glasgow and studied drawing and painting at Glasgow School of Art, gaining a BA hons. Glasgow art school was fully committed to the practice of drawing from life and encouraging the use of colour to the full, to describe landscape or the figure in its variety of light and shade. It is no coincidence that drawing has always been at the heart of the work and for this reason the medium of pastel has featured consistently in her output. Painting has been a learning process and drawing has been instinctive. She was twice the recipient of awards from the Pastel Society of Great Britain. On graduating she was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields travelling scholarship she went to France and enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-arts Aix-en-Provence.
Currently Carol works from her studio in Balloch, Dunbartonshire, exhibits her work throughout Scotland and the UK and is a member of the Paisley Art Institute. She teaches adult groups in the techniques of painting in her local area, she is also a volunteer with Heart for Art, which works with people promoting the abilities and potential of people suffering with dementia.
