 Now retired, Murray worked as a coal miner and as a local public works employee until his retirement. He learned to carve from his grandfather, who had been a windmill builder. When Murray begins a piece, he explains, "I got no purpose in mind. I don't know what something's gonna look like until it's done - just that it's got two arms and legs". His subjects include his well known 'Cape Breton Ladies' - always brightly coloured and often carrying handbags.
