Ms. Murray's "Artists Statement": I feel most fulfilled and at peace when I create on a regular basis. Although I have worked in many mediums, my recent works have been oil paintings.
Oils allow me the flexibility to achieve the depth, light, color, and texture that I see and love in nature. I hope my paintings,convey feelings of joy and serenity through the use of organic shapes and bright color!
Most of my paintings are landscapes or still lifes, most often floral still lifes, painted in bold colors and brush strokes to create a modern take on realism.
