Moyra raduated with a BA Hons in art and Dance from Surrey University. After moving to Cambridge to teach she joined the dance company ‘Icon’ based at Cambridge University and moved north to become Head of Dance at a secondary school in Sheffield.
She has pursued an interest in Botanical and Marine Art and sought to combine her love of both with her beautiful shells. She is fascinated by ‘fractuals’ that appear in nature (repeating patterns of varying sizes) and has created her stunning shells using a mixture of decoupage and her own fine art designs.
Art is a generational family tradition on both sides with her partner being the great nephew of John Ruskin’s publisher and engraver, George Allen.
Commissions can be created by contacting Moyra through he Art and Soul or by visiting her Etsy Shop ‘Beautiful Sea Shells’.
