Artist Statement:

Nora Murphy was born and raised in suburbia Chicago, and moved to Los Angeles when she was 21. While creating window displays for Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, she also photographed comedians and rock stars and the ever-changing landscape of Hollywood. Eventually her photography developed into mixed media designs in various formats. Inspired by her daily walks in the park with her adopted dog, she began a series of paintings called "Every Dog Has Its Day". Working from photos, Nora uses acrylics to paint abstract yet personality-driven portraits of peoples pets. Nora has finished more than three dozen commissions.
