Karis Murray earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Painting and Art History from The Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. She is also Evidence-Based Design Accredited and Certified (EDAC) by The Center for Health Design. At SCAD she was encouraged to develop relationships across all creative disciplines, and quickly saw the benefits of using fine art and commercial design to inform each other. After working next to the director at a prominent NYC gallery, she returned home to Dallas, TX and began her career in art consulting, providing artwork for corporate, hospitality and healthcare facilities. From there she expanded into the high-end residential market, working for the largest gallery in Texas to place blue chip and emerging artists from around the world in private and corporate collections. Karis has a creative eye and is forward-thinking and innovative when developing an art program. Over the past 8 years she has worked with clients like Houston Methodist, Phoenix Children’s, Baylor Scott & White, Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, Samsung, CBRE, Bell Helicopter, Copart, Reliant Rehabilitation, Structure Tone and a variety of other healthcare providers, hotels and law offices.
