Ishbel Murray was born and brought up on the Island of Lewis. Like many young islanders she left home to attend Further Education on the mainland. Ishbel went to the Glasgow School of Art where she studied Fine Art. She became an Art teacher and then latterly a Gaelic Language lecturer. Throughout this period of her career Ishbel produced works of Art using a variety of different mediums. Ishbel has now returned home to the island and is making more time to create Art and develop inventive, new ways of working, often focusing on the seas that have surrounded her most of her life to inform her work.
