Week 15 Activity – Artist Interview – Elia Murray

After meeting up with Gibson Reedy, I walked around the entire art gallery to take a look at what we get to see for today. Moments later I stumbled across Elia Murray’s amazing artwork. Her artwork consist of lively characters and playful themes in the artwork. Murray stated that her Disney like quality promote in audience a feeling of childhood curiosity and  wonder. While Murray paints mostly with watercolor, she also enjoys writing short stories and poems. Murray also pointed out that she wishes to work in animation as well. As of now, Murray is currently trying to write a children’s book with poetry and illustrated pictures. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Murray speak about her many ideas, including a story she wrote about a black bear transforming into another creature. I can’t wait to see what else Murray has in mind and I hope to see her spread out and end up in television.
