Women Who Have Made a Difference in the Creative Arts 

Living the Handmade Artist’s Life with Elizabeth Murray

Elizabeth Murray’s passion for nature and beauty has taken her around the world—from remote African villages and the Amazon rain forest, to Giverny, France, where she helped restore Monet’s Gardens—inspiring her to create a diverse range of art works. Today some of her work resides in permanent installments in corporate collections.

A painter, photographer, author, international workshop leader, and gardener, Elizabeth will be sharing the stories of her life as a multi-faceted artist.

As a popular keynote speaker, she uses the beauty of her photographic images, personal stories, garden metaphors, and humor, to inspire and connect her audience to what has meaning for them. Her goal is to help people express their own creativity in their work and personal lives.

Today, Elizabeth lives in an historic artist colony belonging to painter Charles Rollo Peters in Monterey. She has been restoring the house, cottages and gardens for the last 18 years. The author of nine books, including best-selling Monet’s Passion, Living Life in Full Bloom, and Cultivating Sacred Space, Elizabeth finds the garden to be both a life-enriching art form, and a path to intimacy with nature.

Join us for a three-part lecture series about honoring women who have made a difference in the creative arts. Local women will be featured in one-hour lectures about their chosen subjects. Visitors are welcome to bring food and drinks during this lunchtime lecture series.
