Sharon Moody received a BA in Fine Art from Appalachian State University and an MFA in Painting from George Washington University.
Her current series of oil on panel paintings depicts classic comic books in trompe l’oeil style. She arranges the comic books to focus on the excitement and anticipation of reading, capturing a moment in time as the pages turn. The subject matter celebrating mass-produced consumer products references the Pop Art roots of these works, while the meticulous rendering nods to Photorealism.
Moody has taught at many colleges and universities and has been a faculty member at Georgetown University since 1998. Her favorite class is Materials and Methods, which examines historical painting techniques in the Western tradition.
