While I realize her work spoke directly of her time and life experience, which in itself is compelling, I found her work extremely rudimentary and juvenile. I left the High Museum with a different appreciation for art. Albeit, I would not have been working as hard to absorb or critic each piece if I weren’t a student on assignment. But am very thankful for the assignment, I got so much more from viewing the various works because of this class then I would’ve
“I think that it may be a more effective way to resolve issues than talk therapy. You not only have the beneficial artistic process but a tangible, concrete expression of your thoughts that you can then step back and analyze.” And, she jokes, “I saved myself a million dollars in therapy bills!” And when Cooper-Prince, a sales coordinator at Metro PCS, finally shared her friends and family her new found passion, she found that her works of art resonated with others—especially women who had gone through similar situations. After seven of her watercolors were displayed in two Rockford Coffeehouses, Epic and Frenz, she decided to create a piece for this year’s ArtPrize competition. “I wouldn’t say I’m an artist, but I just felt the need to put it out there as part of the healing process.” The 9-paneled canvas piece, entitled “Til Death Do Us Part”, was created this past spring from silicone, paper, oil, and watercolor.

Instead of becoming a teacher as her mother had hoped, she went against her wishes and found herself uptown in the studio of a famous portrait photographer, Arnold Genthe, asking him for a job. She was hired, and the beginning of her career began. She learned the basics of course, how to set up a camera and studio lights. But soon she met many met many established and well-off people, and studied how Genthe portrayed people: he didn't just quickly take their picture; he somehow seemed to make the camera understand the people.

Introduction Among the most promising American short story writers to emerge during the 1980s, Moore is well-known due to her clever wordplay, irony, and sardonic humor of her creative writing, all of which usually masks an underlying sadness or trauma experienced by her characters.

She looked forward to the coming days when she could talk to the classroom at the local high school and share her stories. She'd become so much more than that young girl could ever dream of. Here she was a successful writer telling stories that made her far wealthier than she though possible. But the true wealth was in the journey and she knew and took it with her where ever she went.
