Born in Oldham, Lancashire, Muriel trained at Manchester Regional College of Art before moving to the Channel Isles where she lived for 10 years and worked at the Jersey Potteries. Moving to Borth in mid-Wales, where she has lived for more than 30 years, her house is only a few steps from the beach and provides Muriel with the setting for her paintings. Expressionist in style, her grey, green palette reflects the often wet shores of Cardigan Bay and the village of Borth. She is a figurative painter, working in oils on canvas or board.
Sadly, Muriel recently passed away, in December 2020, at the age of 92.
