Devi Anne Moore is an inspirational spiritual artist who also teaches in her studio, Bezalel Studio.  She holds a BFA in painting from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, an MFA in studio art from Old Dominion University, and an MA in Theology from Regent University, where she taught Engaging the Arts. She is most noted for her amazing art of the entire Book of Revelation, art now available in seven eBooks. These eBooks are a phenomenal way of meditating on the verses as they correlate to the images, and they make great gifts.

From an early age Devi describes herself saying, “I knew I was an artist since the age of 12.”   Even in the 70’s while in art school, she was told painting was dead, but she refused to believe that and continued to teach herself what was not taught in the school.  As a result, she learned a special way to teach others fine art.  She says, “I feel that artists are perpetual students who love to learn and grow in their areas of interest.  It is a journey just like faith.  What excites her as an artist is the desire to express faith and spiritual understanding in a visual way.  Her art gives a visual platform for the invisible, sometimes with provocation since Art gives rise to a dialogue about controversial things. “

Other than working directly from life I have been using my imagination with reference photos to create new art with a purpose and dialogue while still using the Contemporary Classic realism. This series I call Biblical Surrealism uses selective references from the Bible which are pertinent to today’s happenings. As I use my imagination while reading the Scripture reference, I create inspirational art. Scripture is multilayers which forms what I consider surrealistic thoughts and imagery in the mind.  Using these enthused ideas, I then find visual references and juxtapose them to create new art with the purpose to open dialogue for the viewer to consider what I have painted. A picture does speak a thousand words. I hope my art speaks to you.

Her award-winning work has been exhibited widely within the national art community in museums, galleries, universities, art centers, and co-ops.  The art has also been featured in magazines such as "Christianity and the Arts", "Bible Review", and is featured as a column in "Touching His Heart". Her "White Throne Judgment" was chosen one of the "Top Ten" in the international call for art, "Jesus 2000". She also has several other bodies of work including "The Land of Contrast" depicting the area of En Gedi near the Dead Sea in Israel.

Since 2013 Devi has been under the tutelage of master artists at Studio Incamminati who studied under Nelson Shanks.  She now incorporates what she learns each year to her students.
