Gabi Murphy's career in art was built on the enthusiasm of a bubbly, eccentric art teacher who claimed with exuberant arm waving: "Darling, you must do art!" She has been a freelance artist for over 35 years and has spent happy hours creating lots of cutesy, fluffy characters. She has recently studied acrylic and oil painting at ISoA and has also discovered an interest in digital art. Everything and anything can trigger a scribble session, but color is her greatest inspiration.
