Jerre S. Moriarty

picture of Jerre S. Moriarty cape cod artistJerre Moriarty relocated to Cape Cod in 1985, following a fashion career in New York City. She resides in Sandwich, MA.

She began her studies of pastel in 1992, and has been trained and influenced by noted pastelists and colorists from all areas of the United States.

Her primary focus is on interactions of light and shadow, and how those elements influence subtle values and temperatures of the objects being portrayed, whether they be landscape or still life.

Artist's Statement:

My attention is always captured by the effects of light and shadow and their interplay with the endless subject matter at hand ... wehther it be a tidal marsh, upland meadows or studies of individual flowers. Pastel, for me, captures the immediacy and the nuances of the quickly moving light conditions and allows me to remain spontaneous in my studies of the coastal landscape.
