Moriarty holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Georgia.

ARTIST STATEMENT
I seek to bypass the obvious and stir the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is fascinating to me. Dreams are powerful expressions of the subconscious. While I am dreaming, everything is possible. When I am awake it is not.

It is my way to experience the subconscious in a waking state. It liberates my mind, allowing it to flow freely with no limitation. I travel to a place where there are gold trees, red skies, purple hills -- the land of infinite possibilities.
