Martha McKinley Murphy is a native Pennsylvania artist who has been painting and drawing since age seven. She incorporates humor, joy, and love in each piece she makes. After years of being a painter, she was given a torch set and it opened up a galaxy of work and possible creative venues.

Martha holds a BA in English and Fine Arts and incorporates these two media whenever she can. Her newfound respect for steel and various metals has allowed her to build a career she never thought possible.

Martha also works as an artist-in-residence for the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art and ArtsPath at IUP. Along with her residencies, she has about 55 galleries and shops across the U.S., and even in the Virgin Islands, that purchase her work. She is currently illustrating a book, walking her dogs, and riding her horses to catch a breather now and again.
