Doris Murray, originally from Germany, moved to Johannesburg, South Africa in November 1973.
The warm and bright colours of Africa inspired her art work. Her paintings are very vibrant, especially the acrylics and silks.
In South Africa she was an Associate member of the WSSA, belonged to the Brush & Ch Art Society and took part in many exhibitions. She regularly exhibited at Artist Market in Johannesburg.
She also designed Christmas cards which sold in South Africa, helping numerous Charities.
In May 2008 she and her husband moved to the Charente Maritime in South West France.
She still does very colourful paintings being inspired by the beautiful landscapes around her.
Her paintings have been in various group exhibitions and she has had 3 solo exhibitions at the Tourist Office in St. Jean d’Angely.
Doris is now living in the East Midlands, UK
