Artist Statement And Biography

Artist Statement
"Nature is my inspiration simply because
of her endless subject matter and surprises.
Although I prefer painting nature themes
landscape settings and sometimes
abstract art, I'm open to other things that
may catch my eye. As an artist, I feel that
I'm just a work in progress, and there is
always something to learn. Exploring and
collecting material for paintings is a great adventure for me, and always a thrill to
wonder what's around the bend or beyond that ridge.  I like to create a sense of
place that is somewhere but  nowhere in particular. I hope each and every viewer
sees and takes something a little different from my work and has an experience
rather than just be viewing a picture. My goal is not to paint life, but to paint life into
my work and create an emotional connection that I hope will inspire my viewers."

Biography
Mixed-media artist Gregory Murray specializes in acrylics, pastels, oils, drawings,
digital art, and digital photography. Artwork should convey a sense of connection,
inspiration, fun, beauty, laughter, depth, momentary distractions, and the warm fuzzy
feelings and memories, past, present, and future. Artwork is the difference between
a beautiful journey on the planet and a bland existence. Art is what I do, and what I
love. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I believe art is more than
just a piece of paper or canvas; it is an extension of the artist himself.

Gregory Murray was born 1967, in sandy soil flat lands of Pender County, North
Carolina.

Gregory’s mother was blessed with artistic talents in painting, watching her paint
during her life gave Gregory his passion for art. His mother always encouraged him

Gregory married in 1987, to his wife Kimberly. They have two children and are
enjoying their role as new grandparents.
