F. Magruder Murray creates mixed media artwork that reflects his life and interests. He started art when he was 9 years old. He studied under such artists as Lois Mailou Jones and David Driskell. His work reflects the experiences of his life and his ideas about community and life. He experiments with different media mixes and materials in order to get his interpretation of his subjects. He uses many styles to interpret his ideas to his viewers. His careers in printing, graphic arts, and information technology gave him a solid background for starting an art career. He is now retired from government and is devoting his time to his art. Magruder lives in Washington DC and spends much of his time with his family (four grandsons), when not working on his art.

Background and Training:
His background in art started at age nine in the Corcoran school of Art and continued through to college at Howard University and after.  He has taken art classes at several schools including Howard University, Corcoran School of Art, Maryland Institute of Art, the Alexandria Art League, and etc.
