Jacques Moitoret, a unique and provocative artist, has been painting professionally for over 40 years. Born in 1947 and raised in Seattle, Washington, he studied at the University of Washington and the Academy des Beaux Arts, Avignon, France and independent study in London and Venice.  His technique has been described as Old Master and "smooth as silk." 

Since 1980, Moitoret has concentrated on realistic portraiture, expertly capturing subtle aspects of personality. He maintains that the most challenging and rewarding subject of art is the human visage.  Among other artistic honors, major paintings are included in the Microsoft collection and City of Seattle collection as well premier private collections.
