Nancy Murray Watercolor Artist

Nancy Murray is a watercolor artist displaying her beautiful works in the Scenes of Michigan, Winter Exhibition.

Nancy has been painting and perfecting her craft for over 15 years. She is inspired by the natural world and her landscape paintings are masterfully created en plein air. Nancy is a member of several guilds and her work can be found in permanent collections and venues throughout Michigan.

Nancy captures the magnificence of nature in her Matthaei Botanicals Garden painting. Her palette of soothing greens, dotted with the soft colors of spring time flowers, entices the viewer to take a walk along the path and enjoy the natural landscape.

Macaws are not native to Michigan, but in 2011 a couple of these breath taking birds made their way to the Detroit Zoo. Nancy was inspired to paint this vibrantly colored bird and brilliantly captures its regal nature.

Nancy has several other original watercolors that capture images of places and flora found throughout her travels in Michigan. Nancy always finds herself with her art supplies nearby; at any moment she might feel inspired to stop and paint.
