Patricia Murphy Artist

My paintings translate well into textiles and I enjoy collaborating with rug makers to make wallhangings and rugs, my desire with this is to make art for the floor.

They tend to be one off pieces, and made to commission. I interpret my paintings to make a plan and specification drawing for the rug maker. I select each colour individually in wool and approach it as if it were paint, as I see these as paintings in wool, the colours I use are quite different and are normally dyed especially for my work.
