Michelle Murray, 1962 | Figurative painter


American painter⏩ Michelle Murray was born in Michigan and raised in Ohio before coming to Alberta as a young adult. She now resides in Edmonton with her husband Sean and their family. She is the mother of 8 and grandmother of 8. After early training in Commercial Art, she began to paint with oils in 2003.
Representational oil paintings are Michelle`s passionate focus. In love with oils from the very first brush stroke, she realized the breadth, depth and width of oils is inexhaustible. Using the paint to it’s fullest, she uses thin transparent darks and thicker lights to add vibrance to her work. Depicting beauty for Michelle results from a special use of an illuminating light. Color, edges and value help breathe life into the canvas.
