Kati-Jane Murray


Self taught, and showing his art since age 10; Paul Murray fell in love with the people of Appalachia the mountain folks still holding onto their heritage and old time traditions.  The tenacity and wisdom that they share, the isolation from the rest of not just circumstance, sometimes it is by choice.


Paul Murray is talent through and through. His paintings of Joseph, Zoe, Aunt Elizabeth, ’Red' Maples, should be able to answer when spoken to...such realism, such character, such soul! If ever you visit the Smokies and Gatlinburg, TN, don't miss a visit to his studio there...a simple mountain cottage...and, if you're on time, a visit with Red Maples who has more than one story to tell you! Memorable!
