The anticipation is building for Sunday night’s playoff match up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos.
Fans will be decked out and black and gold, but for one local women her fan hood is literally a work of art.
Tempy Moore, is an art teacher at St. Paul’s Grade School in Weirton, WV and is the first female artist licensed by the NFL.
Her work can be found anywhere from her hometown, to inside the homes of professional athletes, to even the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
She can draw just about anything, but her biggest inspiration comes from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“We try to come up with something that we both think would look good together like the three coaches and six trophies everybody seems to love that one of the biggest sellers,” Moore said.
She’s even been able to show off her work to some of the biggest names to ever where the black and gold.
“I was able to show Mel Blunt his and get it autographed and Le’Veon Bell his and Joey Porter and Franco Harris, Moore said. “Joey Porter was speechless he stood their and stared at it for a good five minutes I was kind of getting nervous but he really loved it.”
But before it reaches the pros it goes through some of her toughest critics,her art students.
“They are just so genuine and honest when it comes to art work they will tell me if some things wrong or if it’s really good,” she said.
Moore says being able to inspire her kids is one of the most rewarding parts of the job.
