Wendy Murray is originally from Yorkshire and was inspired by local dales artists from an early age. After leaving school, Wendy went on to study at York college of art but subsequently embarked on a career in public service. After a gap of over 30 years Wendy returned to painting in 2011 and joined Carnoustie Art Society. Wendy now draws much of her inspiration from the dramatic land/seascapes of Scotland and from flowers. Although Wendy enjoys experimenting with different media she is currently working mostly in Acrylics and pastels. Wendy particularly enjoys working on large canvas and is exploring the use of different tools to create texture and depth in her paintings.
