Roberta Murray, ASA practices art full time with an emphasis on impressionist imagery inspired by the landscape, flora, fauna and people. She practices both photography and painting on an equal basis. Within photography, Roberta strives to create dreamlike, evocative images that allow the viewer to impart their own story or interpretation, while showing us there is a softer, gentle side to life.
Roberta lives in the countryside southwest of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, on land that can best be described as natural and wild. Mother nature provides an abundance of inspiration and reveals the struggle between beauty and brutality which mirrors the human condition.
Roberta's work is influenced by the Pictorialist's and their study of painters. In 2009 she was juried into the Alberta Society of Artists, and in 2014 to the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Oil Painters of America for her painted works. Her art has found its way into private collections across the US, Canada, and UK, and has been used in the hospitality decor industry around the world.
