Cathy McMurray
I am a city girl who loves living near the mountains and the sea. The greatest inspiration for my art is the beautiful scenery that surrounds me. As a native to Portland, Oregon, the majestic mountains and the vast ocean are a constant in my life.

I work with a variety of mediums and am intentional about using materials that are easy on the environment. The wood panels I use are locally sourced, and I draw on paper that is recycled or made in mills using renewable energy.

In addition to creating art, I am passionate about sharing art with others. For many years, I was a schoolteacher and then a shop owner. I regularly blog about my art experiences and findings here.
