Moore, Betty – Painting

Betty Moore

Betty Moore grew up in Blacksburg, Virginia, and has lived here for most of her life. She graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1970 with a degree in Fine Arts and from Radford University in 2003 with a Master of Fine Arts degree. She retired in 2009 after teaching art in Montgomery County Public Schools for 22 years. At the time of her retirement, she was teaching art at Christiansburg High School where she taught for 12 years. She loved having the opportunity to share her passion for art with her students. Since retiring, Betty stays busy with painting, gardening, and traveling to visit her children and six grandchildren who live out of state. She is also active in the Blacksburg Regional Art Association where she is responsible for arranging school programs. She is also a member of the Montgomery Museum of Art and History and a signature member of the Virginia Watercolor Society. Friends and family as well as the natural beauty of the landscape are continuing sources of inspiration for her watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media paintings.
