Artist and designer Mary Murphy was born in Melbourne, Australia. She draws inspiration from the various Asian countries she has lived in including Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok and India. Mary's work is influenced by her background in graphic, landscape and fashion design, studies in horticulture and general curiosity in man's habitation in a transformed natural environment. Mary explores parallels between the complex journeys of migratory birds and her own experiences of working and raising a family while on the move across many countries and cultures. Mary's work has been included in exhibitions in Melbourne and Singapore and has been collected by clients in Australia, Asia and Europe.
