P. Buckley Moss is a celebrated American artist best known for her paintings of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Although Moss struggled in traditional classrooms, her artistic talent flourished when her parents enrolled her in the Washington Irving High School for the Fine Arts in Manhattan, as Art Brokerage reports.
When her husband's career relocated the family to Virginia, Moss acquired a deep love for the surrounding countryside, which became a central focus of her art, according to Wikipedia. She also began depicting scenes from the tranquil Amish and Mennonite culture that she observed firsthand in her community. Her art is notable for its serenity, rural subject matter and warmth.
