Fine Art Oil Paintings by New Zealand Artist Jonette Murray.
Jonette is a self taught artist who paints primarily "from life" in her Wellington studio. Her signature style is well crafted still life oil paintings. In her peaceful compositions, she explores the fleeting beauty of life, endurance, and the importance of living in the moment. She also is developing a range of figurative/portrait work, which has been a favourite subject of hers since she first began painting some twenty years ago.
She is fast becoming a collectable New Zealand artist, with many of her works selling before they are hung at the gallery. She has had numerous sales nationally and internationally, holds frequent solo shows, participates in group shows, and has been a finalist in major art awards in New Zealand. Jonette is a passionate full time artist who divides her time between painting, her husband and three children, and her ever expanding edible garden.
