Michael Murphy

Though specialising in ceramics at Leeds Metropolitan University 1977-1981 Michael has returned to his first love of painting.

He feels most comfortable exploring and experimenting with colour using bold brush strokes and a palette knife.

In his landscape pieces he enjoys portraying his impression of light and fleeting moments. 

Michael travels extensively throughout Scotland selecting scenes which allow him to describe a moment in time rather than depicting a notion of a location.
