It was in the early 1990's the he began to focus his attention on painting.
Roberts work evolved over time. From the beginning, where he painted tiny detailed scenes on 3 lb stones for which he sold literally tons of product, to where he presently finds himself on hydraulic lifts painting images over 3 stories tall.
His work can be found throughout North America. His "canvas" ranges anywhere from a wall in a hospital unit, a seniors center, to
a surrounding garden scene at a wedding chapel.
Although his work is quite detailed and rich in colour and content,the average time to complete a project is about 8 hours.
Of all of the qualities offered by Robert Murray,his greatest is his sense of humour and wit.This has been a great blessing when communicating with a customer.
He makes you feel relaxed and appreciated.
