Early in the 1990’s the North Fork and Greenport in particular had its own narrative and was going to require more than a handful of weekend visits from the city to get a read on it. Moran then settled in Greenport and started painting the storefronts, people, ships and dockyards recording the character that made the area authentic and unique. Encouraged by other artists and new friends he made this town his home. Over 30 years later Moran still resides and creates art on the North Fork.
According to Moran “While selecting and sorting through the paintings many memories came back to me like messages in a bottle. The East End Seaport Museum is a place where those messages can be seen, read and experienced, providing us a history of place. “
