Karla Murray, born 1965 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She has been painting since she was eight years old and was awarded a summer scholarship to the Bemis Fine Art Center.
Her current series of work focuses primarily on the architectural elements as well as the culture of street scenes from small American towns. It is, as always with Murray, the complexity of details within the scene where she focuses her primary attention. « My desire is to document the moment, because 25 years from now, it will not look nor will it feel this way again. »
Her paintings have been collected by people from around the world and have won numerous awards from various art festivals she has participated in over the years.
