Janice L. Moore was born in Canada and grew up in Maine. She graduated from Waynflete School (Portland, ME), and Sarah Lawrence College, where she focused on painting and photography. She continued her art education in France; first in Provence, then Paris. After 12 years in New York, she returned to Maine to paint full-time.
Moore has shown her work in traditional gallery settings, and has a particular interest showing in places of healing, as she did at Maine Medical Center. She continues her ongoing exploration of our industrial landscapes, and what the architecture of our usefulness looks like. Moore examines some of the industries that have helped define us, including the Rumford Paper Mill, the Hood and the B & M plants in Portland, Maine. She has completed a series of the many Lewiston factories in their various states of use, and is currently working on a series on repurposed industrial sites in Maine. She works from her studio in Freeport, Maine.
