Professional Artist Services
I build my signature bright, richly textured paintings for both commercial and residential collections. Using an animated range of shapes, lines and colors, I create large, multi-paneled works on canvas, and smaller works on canvas and paper.
My paintings are made with professional-grade materials, applied using dependable archival methods. All works on canvas are hand-stretched over keyable, lightweight pine stretcher bars. All works on paper are created on fine art cold-press watercolor paper.
From my studio in Portland, Oregon, I partner with gallerists, design professionals, art agents, and private clients to place my paintings nationwide. Commissioned, custom projects are welcomed.
To purchase or inquire about available artwork, or to request a consultation for a project, please email info[at]theresemurdza.com.
A curated selection of original works on paper is available online at Moberg Editions.
Your interest makes original, handmade art possible. Thank you.
