Hi my name is Katie and I have been an artist ever since I was able to pick up a crayon or marker to draw something. I've taken on many roles as an artist and have enjoyed every medium I've touched from hands on painting, to the digital world of graphic design and web development and even had a successful hand-made jewelry business. My most recent venture is restoring old furniture pieces to look new again. To me painting is equivalent of having a day at the spa. I enjoy it that much! I hope you find what we do here inspiring and you come across something you love!

There is something about discovering old pieces of furniture to be refinished that is such a rush. It's like finding the best kept secret that's been locked up for years to then suddenly be lucky enough to stumble across such a treasure. I remember one of my first finds and knew I was hooked. To come across pieces seen to most people as ugly to only be able to view them as an item of beauty with great potential...it becomes an exciting scavenger hunt.
Then there's the act of painting something...to me it's as relaxing as a day at the spa. Seriously...I love painting...the motion of each stroke and the instant gratification of seeing something completely transformed right in front of your eyes. It's something that has now developed to become a passion.
Painting however has been my a passion of mine really since I've been old enough to pick up a paint brush with any type of coordination. Art has been my entire life in some way shape or form. However the moment I discovered my absolute love of shabby chic and all things French country...I decided to make everything else align with that. So Moore Refine, LLP was born.
Here unique one of a kind pieces will be made new again. My hope is to be able to bring out the beauty I have envision for each pieces I discover. With the help of my hubby who has an eye for rare and amazing antiques...something he's done with his father starting from a very young age, we have decided to combine our talents to find and refine all old pieces to be come new and lively again.
Thank you for stopping by and seeing what we are about. We will be working hard to get this site up and going as well as have a physical storefront for you to be able to stop out and see some of our pieces first hand. We also have plans to host classes showing you different products and techniques to help you discover your most inner artist.
