Tell Tale Apple

Tell Tale Apple, seed beads

Born in 1969 in Boulder, Colorado, Amy Clarke Moore grew up in a nurturing environment of literature and visual arts.

Her work reflects a passionate interest in fairytales, myths, and art. She is currently the Editor of Spin-Off magazine, published by Interweave Press. Amy started beading in 1998 to complete a staff project for Beadwork magazine; she was hooked from that moment on. She enjoys the process of stitching the beads to the canvas. She views each bead as a thought and the spiral path of her beadwork is like the passage of time, ?each moment building on the next until an image emerges. Clarke Moore earned her B.A. from Cornell College in Iowa in 1990, majoring in Art, Latin American Studies, and Spanish, and her M.F.A. in Fibers from Colorado State University in 1997. She has participated in numerous exhibitions across the country and is currently represented by Thirteen Moons Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
