Paul Moore is a fifth generation Oklahoma native and is a member
of the Creek Nation. In fact, Paul's fascination for Native
American culture goes back to his grandfather, who knew Comanche
Chief Quanah Parker and regaled the young Paul with stories about
the legendary chief. Moore combined his love of art with
history and decided to devote his life to producing sculpture of
the American West. He then spent many years in Santa Fe, New
Mexico refining his considerable talent and returned to Oklahoma to
bring back the figurative sculpture program at the University of
Oklahoma in 1997.
Since that time Moore has done numerous outdoor monumental
sculptures that has gained him National acclaim as one of the best
realist sculptors in the United States. He has received some
very important commissions for his work that include a portrait of
former House Speaker Carl Albert in 2004 and a bust of former
President John F. Kennedy for the Kennedy Library in Boston,
Massachussetts in 2012. In addition to these impressive
accomplishments, Moore does smaller works and has won three Silver
Awards at the Cowboy Artists of America Annual Show and Sale.
Most recently in 2013, Moore won three awards for Offering to
the Sun which included the Gold Award for best sculpture, the Ray
Swanson Memorial Award, and the Anne Marion Best of Show Award.
Paul Moore currently resides in Norman, Oklahoma.
