Faculty & Staff Profiles

Since graduating from traditional training at art college in Scotland in 1972, Moody has continued to develop her work as a painter, first based on observation and then working non-objectively in the medium of abstract collage and painting on canvas. Subject matter for her work varies widely but could be described as being landscape-based. Moody believes that everything she experiences is potential for her work, whether at home or traveling, observed or imagined. She is actively engaged as an artist on an ongoing basis and exhibits locally, regionally, and nationally in the U.S. and formerly in Great Britain.

Moody has been the recipient of numerous grants in support of her work, notably from the South Carolina Arts Commission, the Arts & Science Council of Mecklenberg County, N.C., and from Winthrop. Meritorious achievements include one-person exhibitions in Washington, D.C., two-person shows in New York City, and selection for a summer residency at McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, N.C., in 2006. Her work is found in numerous private and public collections, including the S.C. Arts Commission Permanent Collection and, more recently, the Carolina Contemporary Collection of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, S.C.

Born of British parents and raised in Kenya, East Africa, Moody moved to Scotland at age 14, where she completed her formal education. She moved to the U.S. in 1982 and has lived in Rock Hill for the past 30 years with her husband, Phil Moody, photographer and Winthrop fine arts faculty member, and two (now grown) sons, James and Paul.
