Hello, my name is Victor Moore. I grew up on a small farm in Southeast Shelby County. I now live in Henderson, Tennessee with my wife of 27 years; we have been blessed with five children and five grandchildren.
Before going out on my own, I devoted seven years to working for a company than needed art for corporate interior design, and another eight in the home fragrance/gift business. Both were great experiences. However, for over ten years now I have had the privilege to work with many interior designers and individuals on a more personal basis. I have been given some wonderful commissions for a variety of canvas paintings, but most of my work has been a combination of murals, trompe l'oeil, and faux finishes. I believe my experience in these wide varieties of mediums and venues has prepared me for this next point in my life. I am looking forward to investing more time in my studio to paint the ideas that I have yet to put to canvas.
I have enjoyed working on many wonderful projects; from the pre-construction planning stage to the final brush stroke. Most of my projects have been residential in nature but some commercial projects include: Henco Furniture in Selmer, TN; Ashley Furniture Store in Memphis, TN and Rodgers, AR; The Ayres Children’s Clinic ( Vanderbilt University’s addition to the Jackson General Hospital); The Jackson Clinic (women’s and pediatric); the Kiwanis Center (rehabilitation for children); the Carl Perkins’ Center in Henderson, TN (for the prevention of child abuse); Elmcroft Memory and Assisted Living Center; and the Linda Tyler Early Learning Village at Jackson Christian School.
Some of the most gratifying work in my portfolio has been with historical projects and churches. I painted murals to mimic the classic 19th Century French paper designs of Zuber, as well as finishes and paintings for the restoration of the historic Burton Palace in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Church projects include: the renovation of the grotto in the historic St. Mary’s Catholic Church on Market Street, Memphis; the altar retablo and Divine Mercy Chapel for St. Mary’s Jackson; the altar of St. Jude, Selmer; the altar, walls, and tabernacle retablo for St. Mary’s, Savannah; and the renovations to St. Mary’s in Bolivar.
I appreciate your time and I am looking forward to working with you.
