It is the common things that compel Murray to paint; busy streets, the factories, the harbours. This is where people live their lives, a place where Murray can speak in paint and record the humble beauty of the simple things around us.


I am a Canadian landscape artist and portrait painter working in oils.  A graduate of Montreal’s School of Modern Photography, I began my career as a large format commercial photographer and worked as a photo journalist, portrait photographer, magazine editor and real estate broker.  I now explore light, form and space through paint.
