Mary Moore

b. 1957

Mary Moore (b. 1957) is a West Australian portrait artist. She began formal art training in Claremont at the age of fifteen, later attending the Western Australian Institute of Technology and Royal College of Art, London. Moore held her first solo exhibition when she was seventeen and went on to gain an Australia Council award in 1983 that enabled her to paint in Italy. In 2001 she won the Portia Geach Prize for a compelling self-portrait; the same year, she was one of six artists featured in the National Portrait Gallery exhibition Intimate Portraits. She has three works in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, including a representation of Professor Fiona Stanley, of whom she painted another portrait that hangs in Perth’s Fiona Stanley Hospital.
