Hal Moran

Biography

Born in the 1950’s, I grew up in an Ozzie and Harriet world. It was much simpler back then. Life was slower – less complex. Life was carefree in a controlled sort of way. Kids played in the street and we rode our bikes anywhere our feet could peddle – without the fear of modern day concerns.

It wasn’t a perfect world, but it was my world, a visual world filled with wonder. It was also in this world that I learned the transcendent values of truth, goodness, and beauty – which now guide my life and work.
Another part of my world wasn’t so simple. In my early 20’s I was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, dyslexia, and other co-morbidities. This helped explain why pictures were, and are now, so important to me, but words on a page – not so much!

My aim is to “make images that matter” – visual metaphors that promote the transcendent values I learned long ago. As you view my work, I encourage you to look beyond the aesthetics. Allow yourself to wonder and wander a bit. And, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. I’d love to hear what you “see.”

I’ve exhibited nationally and internationally while receiving various awards. I am available for presentations, meet the artist discussions, workshops, and other appropriate venues.

My wife and I reside in St. Charles, MO.
