“My life and work took a life altering turn in 2005. Prior to this my work was often flowers and landscapes- very pretty and sweet. Now, by pouring paint and the rare use of paintbrushes or sticks, I allow liquid-emotion and energy to spread across the surface of birch boxes and canvases.” Katrina Murray
Katrina is currently an art instructor at Herron School of Art and Design.
Katrina’s “pour” paintings are liquid-emotion and energy poured onto the surfaces of canvases and deep birch boxes. They are responses to moments experienced, dreams or a lingering thought. The use of popular latex house paint colors further ties the piece to current culture. The moments captured are timeless and often resonate in the viewer.
