Harriet Jane Moore (1801–1884) was a British watercolour artist who is best known for her drawings of Michael Faraday's work at the Royal Institution. She documented his apartment, study, and laboratory in a series of watercolour paintings in the early 1850s. Letters between Faraday and Moore survive at the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

She was the eldest of the five children of James Carrick Moore (1762–1840) and Harriet Henderson (1779–1866). She was the niece of Sir John Moore, a British army general in the Peninsular war.
