Michelle Murray | 1962 | Under The Sun

Michelle Murray is an American Painter who was born in Michigan and was raised in Ohio before coming to Alberta as a young adult. She is currently residing in Edmonton with her husband Sean and their family. She is the mother of 8 children 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 its fullest, she uses thin transparent dark and thicker lights to add variety to her work. Depicting beauty for Michelle results from a special use of an illuminating light. The Colors used by her in her art works, edges and value help breathe life into the canvas.
