Catherine Lucille Moore was among the first women to write science fiction and fantasy. She used multiple pseudonyms, but her most popular was C.L. Moore. Her first stories were printed in pulp magazines during the 1930’s, and soon after they began to appear in other publications like “Weird Tales” and “Astounding Science Fiction” magazine. In 1940 she married Henry Kuttner, and from then on, they wrote the majority of their stories together.

In 1980, Ballantine Del Rey Books published “The Best of C.L. Moore,” a collection of 10 of her short stories. Greg and Tim were given the opportunity to paint the cover, which depicts an elegant female character from one of her stories.

Greg and Tim both were inspired by the story “No Woman Born.” “No Woman Born” is a story of the most beautiful woman in the world. She was a dancer, singer, and actress that nearly died in a fire. Before fate took her, parts of her were replaced with the body of a metal creature. They painted the woman doing what she loved, dancing with confidence and grace in her new metallic appearance.
