Virginia Murphy - Artist and Creative Designer

Unique paintings, hand painted glassware,

felt and machine embroidered pictures

I have been painting for approximately 25 years.  I first started painting when I lived in Scotland and for a short time studied with and was inspired by the well-known Scottish artist Ann Sinclair. After moving back to my home town of Leamington Spa 20 years ago I further developed my painting under the excellent guidance of Warwickshire artist, Pauline Wilson.


I began developing my own technique using various media and experimenting with texture and colour to create a unique style.  

As all creative people develop their own style, mine evolved from small watercolours to large acrylic and oil paintings expressing my love of colour and nature in bold compositions on canvas.  It is a desire to try to recreate the complexity of colours in nature that spurs me on – ever changing my style in the desire to express myself through my pictures.


Although continuing with my painting I now focus much of my time on design and creative arts and crafts.  About 4 years ago I attended several courses in felt making and creative design.  I was really inspired from this to experiment with machine embroidery.  So now, as well as painting, I create very individual and striking machine embroidered pictures, using handmade felt and beautiful materials.
