Richard Armstrong Murray was born in Utah and attended the University of Utah. He is a talented and widely collected Utah painter of atmospheric, romantic landscapes and portraits of animals.
Several years ago, Murray relocated to a ranch/studio property bordering the Snake River in eastern Oregon. His work can be categorized by subject and time period – earlier works investigated the landscape, followed by a long period of highly successful life-size animal portraits with hand-painted frames.
