Moran's Art Studio Inc. was established in 1994 by owner Christopher Moran. The studio produces fine art paintings, murals, sculpture, restorations and interior renovations. I have studied and worked with many great artisans of our day. In Ortisei Val Gardena, Italy. I acquired the old world techniques of the Italian masters on how to restore and paint sculptures, statues, and religious art pieces. This region of Italy has been known for over 500 years for their great religious wood carvings and painting techniques. These techniques were passed from generation to generation. In Florence, Italy, I had the honor to study and work with Ms. Roberta Lapucci, a leading conservation artist and project coordinator for Italy. I obtained the techniques and the process to completely restore a painting and three dimensional art pieces. I worked on several restorations while in Italy ranging from the 1400's to the 1600's. I have developed many new techniques with the knowledge of the old masters combined with today's technology and materials. Also in Florence, Italy, I created classical sculpture under Mr. Dario Arcamone.

Moran's Art Studio specializes in church interior design and complete renovation. I am associated with many talented artisans and a variety of specialty companies that assit me in large projects such as interior church renovation. This approach has allowed me to be very competitive and also allows me to utilize some of the best talent available in various fields. This has resulted in cost savings to our clients while keeping the quality at a high standard. Once a design has been approved, I coordinate every aspect of the project from meeting with church leaders to directing my associates to ensure quality to completion.

With my knowledge and talent for restoration, I have restored to original condition more than two thousand statues, altars, paintings, and art pieces for churches throughout the United States and Italy. In addition to restorations, my associates and I have creatcd many original paintings, murals, sculptures and reproduced replications of the old master's works.

Moran's Art Studio, Inc. can provide a wide range of services from consultation to finished projects at very competitive prices. We have a strong reputation for creativity and of the highest quality work. Our work can be viewed at various churches and a list of references and testimonials, are available to interested customers.


My formal education was at Kendall School of Design of Grand Rapids, and The Center for Creative Studies of Detroit. While attending Kendal I receive many top awards for my art and was published in the schools promotional book as one of their most talented artists'.

At 19 I was the youngest competitor to enter the Jesse Besser Museum's juried art show where I won second place. The following year I had my first one man art show. I have been featured in many publication for my art from magazines to news papers and TV news coverage.

I started Moran's Art Studio, Inc. to combine my love of God, passion for art history, the human form, and artistic talent in preserving and creating art for sacred places.
