Stephen Moore My background and training in art is as a commercial artist. I’m a Colorado native and I went to school for illustration at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design with an emphasis in painting and graphic design. As an artist I enjoy exploring my own theory of aesthetics. Why do we collect and enjoy some things and call them art or beautiful and not others? My art is functional, my paintings tell a story, my 3d art has practical purposes, whether it is a tool like a pen or letter opener, or a sculpture for a board game.
