Artist: Abby Howard Murphy
Bio: In my youth, I created gifts of handmade painted ornaments and stage designs. As an adult, I create children’s murals and even converted offices to NYC streets and underwater kingdoms. Jacksonville’s trees and glorious seascapes impressed us when work transferred us here in 1996. I have returned to canvas with acrylic and oil vistas and subjects captured with my photography.
Piece: Bromeliad Burst
Piece Description: Acrylic painting of bromeliads bursting with yellow blooms and true reds from artist’s photograph.
