Lucy Murfet

Born in Penang Malaysia with a Chinese/Portuguese 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. 

Throughout my life I have always been interested in Art and now I have the opportunity to pursue my interest in painting. 

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.
