Lurlene Murray was born & grew up in Kalgoorlie with a variety of pets. Influenced by her fathers sketching, respect for animals & their characteristics.
From this the passion for understanding animals & birds began.
Due to a lapse in art over a period of time the return to painting has undertaken a new venture, with acrylic works. At present acrylic or watercolour are the main mediums being used.
Over time work has been exhibited & sold in many & a variety of group exhibitions.
The artist would like to portray the character of the animal or bird, with respect to their spirituality & hold the viewers attention for a moment to ponder this.

Many influences throughout the years
My fathers large bold confident sketching & encouragement to draw & paint.
I also was lucky enough to have two professional artists who taught part time at T.A.F.E
My influence now are the birds or animals.
The character of each determines how the painting will be portrayed.
