Roger Murphy Biography

Roger Murphy - Watercolour Artist

Roger Murphy was born in Hobart, Tasmania in 1939. He was apprenticed to a commercial printer as a lithographic artist and he studied life drawing under Jack Carington Smith at the Tasmanian School of Art.

Since 1989, Roger has painted full-time in watercolours and oils from his home studio at Kingston Beach, Tasmania, where he lives with his wife Jan.

He travels and paints regularly in Europe and the Pacific region and he has exhibited widely in Australia and overseas. Roger Murphy’s work is admired by art-lovers worldwide – his paintings are represented in many private and public collections. He is a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute. In 2005, The Mercury newspaper ranked Roger as ranked one of Tasmania’s Top Ten Artists.

All my paintings are of places I like to be.

I like to feel myself in the landscape – on the riverbank, on the shoreline or in a street – and I try to capture my day of being there through the atmosphere, the light and the colour that I put into my works.

Wherever I am painting - in my home island of Tasmania, on the mainland of Australia or overseas, I always feel privileged to be earning my living in these beautiful places.
