Irish artist Mary Murphy ” is original and possesses superior skill. But most of all she is compassionate toward every person that she portrays in her work. She has expanded beyond her beginnings in textile design to master an individualized technique.” Trudi Van Dyke. Independent Fine Arts Curator. Fiber Art Now Magazine.
