An example of fine art by Carol Murphy

After enjoying a career in advertising and marketing, Carol Murphy returned to an earlier passion for drawing and painting, and and with it found an interest in soft pastels. As luck would have it, one day while doodling, the doodles turned into squiggles and her current pastel technique “kinetic color” was born.
While inspiration comes from all spectrums of life, what Carol enjoys most about her current work is showcasing the vibrancy of pastels as a medium.
Along with simple shapes and simple designs, Carol’s colorful fabric of interwoven line work has become a trademark of her unique imagery. There is something joyful about the circular, patterned lines and the juxtaposing colors. And that’s what you’ll find in every piece of her lively pastel art.
