About Douglas Moorezart

It seems a lifetime ago I earned a degree in Fine Arts only to find myself overtaken by life events. Now over 30 years later I’m finally becoming an artist. I’m trained as a painter and its my first love. In the last few years I’ve also given photography a try and you will find my attempts at same in my posts and, soon, my portfolio.

In a world where artist are pressured to measure their success based on others’ expectations — be it sales, representation, publication etc., I share this remarkable statement by Georgia O’Keeffe. (It definitely speaks to me)

“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing.  Making your unknown known is the important thing.”

Your site is gorgeous, and as I look around more I realize what a great gift you are giving by sharing your creativity with us. Maybe 30 years of past life events did get seem to get in the way … but your amazing next 30 years is just getting started. Thanks again….

  2. So nice to meet you, Douglas! When I started reading this about page, I thought, “It’s never to late to become what you might have been.” Coming back home to art, myself, I thank you for the Georgia O’Keeffe quote.
