About the artist

Alex Murray's interest in wildlife stems from growing up in Alaska, Nevada, and Northern California. He has been an artist for over 25 years. In his spare time, he is also a licensed commercial pilot and contractor.


His main subject interests are wildlife, western, and portraits. He works with scratchboard, India ink on clay board, and acrylics. Scratchboard allows Alex to bring out the realistic detail in his subjects. Scratchboard is a form of direct etching where the artist starts with a masonite panel coated with white clay and then topped with a layer of black ink. A sharp tool is then used to scratch away the black ink to expose the white clay below, leaving a black and white image. The image can then be colored. His portraits are done with India ink on white clay board.

Alex shows his artwork in galleries, private collections, and his work is available for purchase and shipping. He is a Signature Member of The International Society Of Scratchboard Artists.
