American artist Fay Moore is best known for her thoroughbred racing scenes, but she has expanded her work to include other forms of sports including hockey, football, baseball and squash. Her earlier works in oils and commissioned murals for racetracks and related corporations across the country established her as a national presence in the sporting art genre. Moore has worked in fashion, stage-design and window display, and has been on the faculty of the Yale Graduate School of Drama, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Kansas City.
