This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Best known for her thoroughbred racing scenes, she has a studio in the National Arts Club in Manhattan's Grammercy Park district. She thinks she is the first women to get credit for painting sports, an interest that began in the 1960s when she attended the races in Saratoga, New York.

She studied art with Henry Hensche, attended the Cambridge School at Weston, Massachusetts, Bennington College in Vermont, and the Yale Drama School in set design. She has been a member of the Pastel Society of America and chairperson of the board of The American Academy of Equine Art.

Biography from The National Art Museum of Sport, Inc.:
Fay Moore (b.1920)

Fay Moore is one of the first women to receive recognition as a "sports artist."  Although she is best known for her thoroughbred racing scenes, Moore has not limited herself to just one sport; instead, she has painted hockey, football, baseball, and squash.

Her focus and success with outstanding collectors became centered on her interpretation of thoroughbred racing and resulted in a number of mural commissions for racetracks and related corporations across the country.

An experienced draughtsman and a loosely impressionistic colorist, she is well-informed in classical anatomy and composition.

She describes her painting as "neo-pointillist."  In easel-scale work of recent years, her signature style of many layered inks, watercolors, gouaches and pastels has attracted awards, reviews and articles.

"I have tried every style of painting I've seen or heard about and thought it might interest me, but I have never been a minimalist. I like things that are complex and demand effort," Moore states.

A Renaissance woman who has worked in fashion, stage-design and window display, she has been on the faculty of the Yale Graduate School of Drama, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Kansas City.  She is now represented in museums and college collections.

Having studied painting earlier with such diverse masters as hard-edge pioneer Paul Feeley at Benninton College and colorist Henry Hensche at the Cape Cod School of Art, her professional painting career began in the 1960s.

Moore's work can be seen in a variety of galleries, museums, and magazines; including Heike Pickett Gallery in Lexington-Versailles, KY; Frost and Reed in London; The Sporting Gallery in Middleburg, VA; the Kentucky Derby Museum, and The Artist's Magazine.

She is a Trustee of the National Art Museum of Sport, chairman of The American Academy of Equine Art, and an officer of the National Arts Club where she maintains a studio.
