Learn more about our faculty member Justine Moody.
Justine Moody is an artist and local public school art teacher working with students from 6 to 12th grade at Miller Place HS. She was born and raised near the water on Long Island and shares that nature has always been a real inspiration for her work. Justine studied ceramics at Pratt Institute and later worked for a variety of sculpting and model making studios throughout New York City.
Currently she works with natural fibers, charcoals and paint, and her forever love, clay. She embraces history, photography, and age old crafts techniques, especially felting and weaving. Working with materials like clay and raw-natural fibers allowed her to embrace and connect to centuries of tradition in a modern art form. She works with organic, renewable materials like clay and natural fibers. Working with cruel free animal fiber along with various plant fibers allows her to stay true to her passion for sustainability. Painting and working with color is a magical experience for Justine, often unable to put into words the feeling and emotions that can translate through color, line and texture. The process of building and removing layers lets her work evolve to create new and different spaces. Drawn to ethereal and organic shapes and forms, often mimicking nature, you are taken on a journey into a dreamlike fantasy creating your world.”
