 Julie Murphy: Escape into Absurdity

A lifelong doodler, Chicago-based artist Julie Murphy uses her vast work experience as inspiration for her drawings. Jobs in a wide assortment of fields, including administrative assistant for a pharmacology nomenclature group, video editor, bartender, printmaking teacher assistant, script reader, art department coordinator for television, stop-motion animation prop designer, PA, bank employee, radio station assistant, receptionist, waitress in a retirement home, and children’s shoe salesman have fueled the desire to escape reality, in addition to supplementing a rainbow of character studies for artistic creations. Julie earned a BFA degree in illustration from Art Center College of Design in California, as well as a BS degree in radio/television/film from Northwestern University.
