About the artist

Garret Murphy,


I am an American that grew up in Paris, surrounded with beauty and grit, everything you see in France is an artistic expression! After a quarter century of traveling and working around Europe and the US, i finally settled in Napa Valley where the landscape, the people and the food reminds me of France. Perfect place to be inspired!

I am a self-taught painter, i love all mediums such as oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, graphite etc... My favorite expression is impressionistic, i really love doing portraits and landscapes. Don't be surprise if sometimes i let my mind wonder, the result is very surrealistic and abstract, say what can't be said, and day dreams are expressed with each marks!.
