Patrick J. Murphy (Temecula, California)
Patrick J. Murphy’s dimensional fine art is a unique combination of digital photography, sculpted paper, acrylics and pastels that result in eye-popping, three-dimensional impressionist pieces. His healing art work has the flavor of a Georgia O'Keefe painting infused with Murphy's childlike sense of discovery and playfulness. A nature lover, he paints with light — from the earth, woods, mist, shadows, sky, flowers and fire. Patrick is a classically-trained artist with a BFA from Chouinard Art Institute (California Institute of the Arts) where he attended on a Disney Scholarship. He then honed his talents, techniques and styles over a 35-year career in advertising and marketing. As an advertising agency president and creative director, Murphy wrote, produced and directed more than 500 commercials earning him numerous industry awards. Patrick’s original dimensional fine art works are custom sized to fit client needs. Each piece is professionally framed with floating mats, museum glass, archival paper, and gallery frame. In addition to offering existing works to collectors, he is now accepting commercial and residential commissions.
