Susan Gramling Moore

Moore is a native of Orangeburg, South Carolina. She received a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of South Carolina. She has always had a love for art and enjoys experimenting with color and texture with both acrylic and oil paints. Her paintings come to life with shapes of color and unique contrasts of lights and darks. She is inspired by the beautiful colors in God’s natural creations and loves to apply them to her work, sometimes coherently and sometimes not. She uses a brush and palette knife to create vibrant landscapes, still lifes and abstract paintings.

After an artistic upbringing, it wasn’t until Susan decided to paint a few items to fill the blank walls of her husband’s office that she felt the tug to embrace her artistic calling.  People started to ask to buy her pieces, and then people started requesting commissions, and her living room transformed into an art studio.  She is excited to have her new proper painting studio under her house next to the garage so that she no longer has to move her projects out of the way for her family to eat at their dining table. Susan Moore’s bold, joyful original artwork graces homes 
across the Lowcountry and beyond.

Susan, her husband Rion, and their three daughters live in Georgetown. When she isn’t painting, Susan enjoys cooking, spending time with family, and taking long walks around Georgetown, where she often finds inspiration for her paintings.
