Nature Art In, Oil, Acrylic, Egg Tempera. Robin Murray
 
Born in 1986 in the beautiful Michigan upper peninsula, I've grown up surrounded by nature and art. With no formal education in art I would have to say my Dad is the greatest teacher and critique of my art, and my grandfathers love for nature especially birds, achieving a doctorate in Biology and an avid birder, he always had a answer to my questions. Also admiration of great nature Artist's as Robert Bateman, Terry Isaac and John Audubon have led to where my skill is now.

I can not remember a time that I haven't been interested in
nature. It has always captured me, in turn I do my best to capture it. Whether in paint, wood or other materials, I enjoy it immensely . As a child I can remember carrying around my "Peterson's field guide to Birds of North America" identifying and sketching as I went. Growing older "teen" years, unfortunately I lost some of my ambition for painting. But recently it has been reignited and I have returned to my easel with renewed energy and purpose to use the talent that I have been given to the fullest. I want to use my art as a mouth for those who cannot speak our language, to portray the majestic beauty of our planet earth and all its wildlife inhabitants.
