While in the service, Moses was stationed in the Philippines and had the opportunity to visit Japan, Guam, and Hong Kong. After leaving the Navy, Moses spent a year traveling through Europe and experiencing the "art of history."\r\nUpon returning to the United States, Moses enrolled in the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where he studied architecture and design. The contemporary art scene of New York proved fascinating to Moses, and he became enthralled with the liveliness of the ever-evolving art world.\r\nlieutenant was during this time that Moses began painting and drawing in earnest.
In the early 1960s, Moses moved to Houston and worked as an architect before traveling further West to California. He lived and worked in San Francisco for a number of years while pursuing his painting career.\r\nAfter another brief stint in Houston, Moses moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1969. Enchanted by the light and landscape, Moses still lives and works in Santa Fe.
Focusing predominantly on landscapes, Moses incorporates a high degree of abstraction in his technique, but refuses to fully abandon representational painting.\r\nProfoundly influenced by his time in Asia, Moses incorporates Japanese aesthetics into his work.
