 RENEE' MACMURRAY
 Artist and Owner of 
 MacMurray Designs Art Studios / MacMurray Art & Wellness
 
 
Renee' MacMurray, was raised in Hingham Massachusetts.
Growing up she was always involved in drawing and painting 
activities, influenced by her mother who was also an artist.  
While attending Hingham High School, Renee' took elective 
art classes and enrolled in weekend extra curricular art courses 
at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston.

In her senior year of high school, with the encouragement 

from your Art Teacher

and Mother she decided to go to college to become a professional "Artist". 

Renee' went on to graduate from the Art Institute of Boston in 1994 receiving a

Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, with a major in Illustration/Commercial Art and

a minor in Fine Art and Children's Book Illustration.

While studying at AIB, she worked in an Art Gallery as the Gallery Manager,

as well as developing their Advertising Department. 

 Shortly after graduating from college, in 1995 she decided to open her own 

Art Gallery/Decorative Painting Business, called  "All Things Painted ",

which she then changed to "MACMURRAY DESIGNS" in 2008. 


In her original art gallery she began her career by selling her own original

artwork and prints of Boston and the SouthShore, as well as

branching into the decorative painting industry. 

Transforming old furniture into new beautiful works of art to resell in 

her retail space. 

Within months she was asked to custom hand paint furniture for her clients 

through her contacts of Designers and general public seeing the beautiful 

furniture in her display window of her Gallery, and within six months of being open,

Renee' was asked to paint her first Mural. 


From that point on, her business was transformed into a Mural Company, creating 

custom hand painted murals for residential and commercial properties.  

Over the 20 some years Renee' has received a tremendous amount 

of recognition throughout Boston and in her community for her Original Artwork, 

Custom House Portraits and Painted Murals.

Which can be seen through out New England  (Boston, South Shore, the Cape and Islands)

and has been featured in numerous magazines such as:

South Shore Living, Cape Cod Home & Islands, Home & Garden and Boston Magazine.

You will also see Renee's artwork printed as cards and displayed in all gift shops 

all along the Eastern Coast, from Maine to Florida,

which is printed and distributed by East Coast Print Images, www.caswellgalleries.com


Currently, Renee' is slowly shifting from Mural Artist to Art Teacher. 

Teaching private and group lessons to children and adults at her Art Studios on the 

Hingham/Weymouth/ Rockland line in Ma.

( Location: 200 Weymouth Street, Rockland Ma )


In the Fall of 2016, she purchased a 10,000 ft sq building and opened 

MacMurray Art & Wellness, 

Introducing a collaboration of Healing for your

mind, body and soul through creativity and relaxation. 


MacMurray Art & Wellness, offers a variety of Art Classes for 

Children and Adults as well as, services such as Reiki, 

Aromatherapy, Hypnosis and Message Therapy.

As a part of the collaboration Renee' has also rented half of the building to 

110 Fitness / Rock Steady Boxing, 110Fitness.org 

A fitness boxing gym that specializes in the exercise and rehabilitation 

of people with parkinson and other physical challenges.  


It is a warm inviting environment for all ages to explore

their creativity free of judgement, a perfect "Art Escape" from the intense 

and busy world we live in today.


This subtle transition in Renee's life/career from Artist / Painter to Teacher is a way 

for her to give back to the community and offer a place a peace and serenity. 


MacMurray Designs Art & Wellness was created in Honor her Mother, Rita MacMurray 

who was also an Artist and always encourage and supported Renee' in every step of her life. 

Rita MacMurray, passed on Christmas Day 2015 at the age of 70
