Emily Murray identifies herself as a Girramay and Jirrbal Traditional Owner of the Davidson Creek area. Emily lives at Murray Upper, north-west of Cardwell.
Emily has a very strong connection to place and heritage and draws from traditional stories, calendar events in the lives of plants and animals, and the places where she lives and camps for her inspiration. Emily is not afraid of a challenge and works across a number of mediums including weaving, painting and ceramics. Her work is represented in a number of private and institutional collections in Australia including the Queensland Art Gallery.
As a weaver of traditional mindi baskets, Emily has been a tutor and demonstrator of weaving practices at schools and art centres across Far North Queensland.
