About/ CV

Destiny Moore is a 21-year-old black woman who was born in Miami Florida. She attended New World School of the Arts (NWSA) where she graduated in 2020 and currently attends Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) as an undergraduate student. In 2020 she was a Young Arts finalist and presidential nominee, Gordon Parks Centennial Scholarship Winner, and recipient of the Miami-Dade County Scholastics Silver Key along with other notable awards and mentions. As an interdisciplinary artist, she applies different forms of art such as painting, sculpting, animating, textiles, and more. Destiny’s work revolves around her identity, race, culture, and opinions on topics of the past, and present. She paints black female figures blue as an exploration for creating a narrative through visual representations that are beyond her comfort zone. Her goal is to create representational imagery and produce work that gives her a crystalline perspective of who she is.
