Murray Kimber

Murray Kimber

"Murray has been an artist all of his life. He began drawing when he was three and never stopped, filling stacks of drawing pads with comic book characters, custom-designed houses, race cars, rocket ships or posters for movies featuring Boris Karlof as Frankenstein or Christopher Lee as Dracula.

A graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1988, he chose to pursue illustration over graphic design and worked to establish himself as a sought after illustrator in Canada and the United States, creating original art for projects ranging from billboards to postage stamps, from children's' books to packaging.

In tandem with his commissioned work, Murray taught illustration and drawing for 5 years until 1997 when he and his wife moved to Mexico. Four years later and with a new baby daughter in tow, they returned to Canada to the shores of Kootenay Lake in Nelson, British Columbia.

After 40 years, Murray believes his drawing isfinally starting to show some promise."
