Murray Killman U. E. (United Empire Loyalist also 'Unity of the Empire'), a seventh generation Canadian was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1929. Murray Killman became a professional artist in 1952 and went on to be a journalist and fine art painter specializing in wildlife and historical subjects. Starting as a designer, technical, and calendar illustrator, he has since been recognized as a highly skilled historical realist and a wildlife artist. He works in oil, acrylic, watercolor and chalk pastel. His studio is located in the center of the Killman Zoo near Caledonia, Ontario.
"My chief subjects have been wildlife and history. I like to get as much information on a subject as possible, thus the need to own wildcats." Small wonder about the detail and love for the animals he portrays.
His wildlife paintings have been exhibited by the World Wildlife Fund, and on National tour with the Canadian Nature Federation. His limited edition prints are worth thousands of dollars.
Murray Killman U.E. is a listed Canadian artist known not only for his paintings but also for the historical research into his family's history where his ancestors fought on both sides of the American War for Independence.
On the back of this print reads a note stating this print was the exclusive first printing from an original pastel creation.
