A retired vice president of Northwest Airlines, Moon returned to a full-time art career in 1987. Living the experience before each painting is Moon’s prerequisite, so to understand lions he lived with the late George Adamson of "Born Free" fame in Africa.
His African experience with big cats shaped his interest in domestic cats and confirmed his lifetime association with dogs. What followed was another unpredictable series of offbeat whimsical art for which he has become so popular.
His cats and dogs in various artful pursuits have delighted collectors across the United States, Canada, Britain, and Japan. While his whimsical art is admired by people who love his humor and style, his serious works are in the permanent collections of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum, the United States Air Force Academy, and the Army and Navy Club in Washington D.C.
