Lucy Murfet

Born in Penang Malaysia with a rich cosmopolitan heritage that is present in much of my paintings.
I moved to Hobart in 1969 when I was 20, and then moved to the mainland in 1974. I moved back to Hobart in 2007. Having worked in Graphic Presentation works with Architects/Planners/Engineers, in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.
Since then I have been involved in a few exhibitions, being part of the Art Society and ADFAS has enriched me in many ways. Meeting other artists and making new creative friends have enriched my life.
I paint in oils in a Genre style, I love depicting people having fun in a variety of settings. This style gives me the opportunity to paint from my imagination and with a sense of humour.
I truly believe that Art can bring joy to people’s life. Especially now when we need to take our mind to a comfort zone.
