I am so pumped about this artist. She didn't pop up on my radar until I posted on Instagram that I wanted to know everyone else's favorite fluid artists. And once I saw her Instagram account my knee jerk reaction was green with envy. I mean, it's hard not to be. Look at these paintings! She is amazing! She balances sexy cells with ethereal swipes like no other. She thinks of using techniques in a way that is sooooo Murry. She comes up with creative products and gifts to offer her clients that are just dripping with creativity. Oh, and she's super rad. One of these days we will meet in person and it will take all of my might not to fangirl over her. With no further ado, here is what she had to say about fluid art.

What drew you to fluid art in the beginning?
I stumbled across an Arthur Brouthers painting on Pinterest and thought it was the most magical thing I’d ever seen. From that moment on I’ve been obsessed with fluid art.
What type(s) of fluid art do you prefer (ie. acrylic pours, alcohol inks, etc....)
I prefer to work with fluid acrylics. I have tried both resin art and alcohol inks but they don’t captivate me the way acrylics do.
What is your process like?
I mix up my techniques: flip cup, dirty pour, dips, balloon smash...I don’t particularly like the “swipe” method mostly b/c it never works out that great for me 😂
How has fluid art affected you?
It’s has become part of my life on a daily basis! It is a stress reliever and just simply a fun magical experience that I can’t imagine not having in my life now.
What are some of your favorite fluid art products?
Liquitex Basics Paints, Counter Culture DIY resin, ArtResin, Liquitex gloss varnish, Golden’s Gloss Pouring Medium
Do you have any tips for beginners?
Watch some tutorials they help tremendously when starting out! I took lots of notes and learned so much great information.
What have been your frustrations with fluid art?
Getting my perfect paint recipe!!!! I took almost 3 yrs 😳
