About the Artist
Kim Murray specialises in equine sculpture.
Primarily working in clay from photographic and "hands-on" reference, Kim’s écorché sculpting style results in fully formed horse and pony sculptures with great anatomical accuracy.
Kim is continually perfecting her technique which she has found enables her to take great care to add each element of the horse’s anatomy and because of her continued studies in equine anatomy, she approaches each sculpture with immense precision and with a scientific mind.
Californian born, Kim grew up in Colorado, horse mad and highly ranked in the national showing /show jumping scene owning a handful of successful competitive horses.
Her career spans much equine experience both hands on and also at degree level studying Equine Management in New Jersey and then returning to Colorado to a Fine Art, Degree and onto Florida for computer Animation (3D Model Making).
After moving to Ireland in 2013, Kim married and had a baby whilst owning and running an Alpaca Farm near to Ennis on the West Coast.
Due to her husband’s career they decided to move again, finally settling in Cheshire, where she currently refines her sculpting skills and passion for horses and art.
Please do enjoy Kim's works and feel free to contact her with any questions.
Kim is currently taking commission bookings for both sculptures and customised model horses - do feel free to contact her as she does get booked up quickly but, is always happy to chat over new and future project ideas
