As an artist, Moira started out making photographs in the film era but became discouraged by the the extensive use of chemicals and what she saw as the limitations of the medium. However, the potential unleashed with the advent of the digital age has re-ignited her creativity because digital darkrooms have many times the capacity of their analogue predecessor. What a joy it is to make digital images!

She believes modifying images with software is a valid use of the form so her work often tends toward the obviously manipulated, the abstract or the surreal.
