I'm Magda Moor.

My inspiration for painting came alive as a runner. On my runs, I would observe the color and textures of my surroundings. Envisioning architecture, nature and movement in paint. Vivid colors, intricate structures, and life in action became my passion. Being born and raised in the Chicago area, I frequented arboretums, the Shedd Aquarium, local museums with my camera as my notebook. My Track and Field Accomplishments (Four Time All-American), allowed me to fuel my passion for painting. It earned me a scholarship to the University of Wisconsin -Parkside, in Kenosha, WI. Achieving my BFA, majoring in Painting. It gave me the opportunity to travel and compete throughout the US while taking Notes and photos of my journeys.

After graduation I worked for several years as a graphic and commercial artist all the while doing commissioned works in various paint mediums. Then marrying and spending time in Rome, Florence, Venice, and Budapest Hungry and finally moving to “The Dreamer’s State”, Oregon, I reestablished my painting career and my own studio. Several works have been sold to private collections.
