Artist Statement

Australian artist Nicole Murray is a painter, illustrator, sculptor and musician.

Working from her studio in Maleny, she creates figurative works which fire the imagination through their narrative and their beauty. She is currently painting a series of sculptural banyan figs, working in oils and acrylics. Landscapes of the local Maleny area and lively images of musicians also deck the studio at the moment.

Previous projects have included: a series of paintings and collages of musicians, dancers and other participants in the Australian folk music scene; children's book illustrations for "Blik", by Sandy McCutcheon, published in April 2002; paintings on books, literally using books as the substrate and investigating themes drawn from books; and working with folk duo Cloudstreet, touring Australia and internationally. ...
