Diana Moore is a New Hampshire based artist and writer, specializing in fine art photography, poetry, and fiction. She is currently an MFA candidate at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
Diana’s art is driven by her desire to make a difference in the world. Ever since she was a child, she felt compelled to serve and to be a positive force in society. She has ainnate curiosity and deep appreciation for people and their stories, and a deep love for the natural environment. She is drawn to photography as fine art combined with her crafting of words to convey the ancient and mystical connection we have to the earth and all her creatures, and the sadness of separation that has evolved as society became industrialized and then technologized. Photography is a beautiful, humanistic art. It is story crafting without words. It is the artistic expression of light. It fosters a connection to the world around us.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Diana has lived Indiana, Kentucky, Florida and now New Hampshire. She has an extensive background in academics and research, having earned a BA in history from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, an MS in library and information science from Drexel University, and a PhD in educational technology from Nova Southeastern University. She also completed a year of graduate coursework in classical studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She has had a long abiding interest in alternative healing arts and had earned a number of certifications in alternative therapies, including Reiki, hypnotherapy, and Ayurveda. She is a certified yoga instructor at the 500 hour level and completed 100 hours of training in yoga therapy.
Diana enjoys producing photography for non-profit organizations to help organizations raise awareness for their cause. Her other interests include writing, travel, running, yoga (instruction and practice), natural wellness, and teaching. She currently resides in Hooksett, New Hampshire with her husband and daughter.
