Elaine Murphy

Elaine Murphy is an internationally recognized and collected contemporary artist.

Elaine Murphy is a native of Dublin, Ireland. She is an Irish artist and designer who is currently based in beautiful Naples, Florida. She grew up in Dublin in a show business family, with her father, Mike Murphy, being one of Irelands most famous and respected television and radio hosts.

At the age of four in Dublin, Elaine’s grandfather asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, and she replied “an artist”. Art is, and always has been, her passion.

Elaine studied both fashion illustration and fine art at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, and The Grafton Academy, Dublin.

After performing as a high fashion model in Dublin and London, Elaine returned to her true passion, her art. She worked in London for the famous fashion designer Zandra Rhodes, while illustrating for various fashion magazines, including “Image”, “Woman’s Way”, “U” and “It”.

She had her first exhibition in Dublin, Ireland in 1988, at age 21. The theme was a 1960s inspired series of hand-painted art plates.

Over the past thirty years, Elaine has expanded her creative pursuits from fashion to jewelry design to abstract and figurative art. She also founded her own factory devoted to her ceramic and home accessory designs in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Her design work has been celebrated and sold worldwide. She has designed for a number of leading brands, including Waterford Crystal.

Elaine moved to Palm Desert, California in 2000, where she had the opportunity to work with the renowned abstract artist, Gerome Gastaldi. She then focused on her fine art large format figurative and abstract paintings. A collector once described her painting style as “loose and fluid, with emotional overtones conveyed by elegant lines. The combination of abstraction and bold figurative lines conspire to make her expressions on canvas truly unique.”

Her paintings now hang in many private U.S, International, and celebrity collections.

Elaine returned to her first love, fashion, in 2011, and launched her “Art To Wear” collection. This features hand-painted clothes, and one of a kind necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
