Kimberly Moore Art
We founded Fete Home on the principle that it’s the last layer of your home which makes it really special - beautiful objects add visual interest and spark conversation, hand-blocked tablecloths and napkins create an effortlessly elegant look, and plush, patterned pillows give your home personality. Art is no exception. And, we are thrilled to add art to our offering by releasing a limited quantity of original pieces by artists we love.
We couldn’t be more excited to start with collage and ink works by Kimberly Moore. Kimberly Moore is a self-taught artist who began her career as a dealer and appraiser of antiques. She brought some of her art to an antique show (under a pseudonym), and it was quickly purchased by a few well-known designers. Kimberly focuses on art full-time now, and the rest is history! Her work has been featured at the Kips Bay Showhouse in NYC and the Southern Living Showcase Home in Nashville as well as at the Four Seasons Cabo and the Luxe Hotel Beverly Hills hotels. Read below for what inspires Kimberly, as well as her favorite hostess gift. And, shop her work before they’re gone!
Fete Home: What do you love about what you do for a living?
Kimberly Moore: I love that I am able to be creative in my work. I have always loved art and design and to be able to incorporate both of them is a dream job. I contemplated becoming a designer but art chose me. Ultimately it worked out as most of my work is purchased by interior designers. I also have been fortunate to have my work in the Four Seasons Cabo, Luxe Hotel Beverly Hills and a number of showhouses with Kips Bay New York being the icing on the cake! So, I am kind of experiencing the design world but from a different perspective.
Fete Home: What are you most inspired by?
Kimberly Moore: I am most inspired by abstract artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Cy Twombly, Picasso, Ben Nicholson, Robert Motherwell, Joan Mitchell, the list could go on and on!
Fete Home: What are some of the ways you love to incorporate small scale art into a home?
Kimberly Moore: In my own home, I incorporate small art in various ways: hanging on the wall, in a cabinet or bookshelf, or simply leaning against another larger piece.
Fete Home: We think of art as items that spark conversation. What’s the conversation you hope to achieve with your work?
Kimberly Moore: I hope that people view my work and see the layers. I attribute them to the layering of life. Sometimes added or removed, covering the marks of our past with new experiences.
