Constance Moore

Constance Moore is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Oakland, CA. She shares her young students’ love of color and hopes to transmit their spirit and freshness into her work. Whether figurative or abstract, at its core, Constance’s art is narrative, rooted in the power and meaning of storytelling. Borrowing a color palette from the elementary art rooms where she teaches, her work is bright and playful. Constance’s work takes pleasure in, and, recognizes the importance of ordinary materials common to teaching and learning. She loves working with tempera paint, crayons, fabric scraps and felt. She is the illustrator of the children’s books Brown:The Many Shades of Love, Black:The Many Wonders of My World and Blue:The Many Feelings I Feel, written by Nancy Johnson James. Constance’s debut author/illustrated picture book biography, Rosie Lee Tompkins: A World Stitched Together, will be published in spring 2026.
