Feel the quiet of a winter walk, the peace of a sunset or the breeze blowing as waves break on the shore – Moira Burke is drawn to subjects that trigger an emotion, a sense of place or a memory. Working from plein air studies, sketches and other location references she challenges herself to capture the atmosphere of a moment on canvas, often progressing from small studies to larger pieces while exploring the possibilities of colour and tone. Water and shorelines are a constant inspiration and you will find works small and large that explore this theme, as well as landscapes.

Primarily an oil painter, Moira has shared a large and light-filled studio with fellow Studio Tour artists Catherine Eichstedt and Ingrid Connidis since 2016.
