Roberta is a full time visual storyteller working in paint, pencil, and pixels. A lover of bears, puppy dogs, flowers, sunshine, and happiness, she believes the world needs more kindness, compassion, joy, innocence, and love. She hopes her work can take people there if even for a brief moment.


Roberta Murray is an Alberta based visual storyteller. Since she was able to hold a pencil, she has occupied her time with drawing and painting. Photography entered the mix as a child as well. She went on to study photography and the fibre arts, but the storyteller in her lead her back to pencil and paintbrush. 

Roberta’s work reflects her passions, dreams and desires regardless of the medium she works in. Birds, wildlife, flora, and the human experience – though not necessarily in terms of reality, are all explored in her work. 

Life is far too serious, so for Roberta, art acts as an escape, giving her the freedom of discovery, play, learning, and make believe. The resulting works take the viewer along on this journey where they can enter a world filled with whimsy, kindness, and innocence. In 2009 Roberta was juried in as a full member of the Alberta Society of Artists. Her work hangs in private and public collections around the world.
