Art, although it can be defined in many ways, has existed since the beginning of mankind. There are so many ways people choose to express themselves through different art forms, and all art is subject to the opinion of the viewer. My name is Alanna Murphy, and for me, art is and has always been a significant part of my life. From the time I was born I have spent many summers and weekends traveling to various cities with my family who made their living selling art. My father, Murf, is a well-known South Florida artist and he has been a major source of inspiration for my artistic endeavors. I have seen that making a living through art is not always easy, but in the end, it can be very rewarding.
To me, art is about conveying some sort of message. While much of my work is abstract, I also have many works that incorporate my passions. These passions include nature, traveling, drinks (tea, coffee, alcohol), family, friends, and trying new things. I tie in objects, photographs, and other miscellaneous objects to give my art character. I also am constantly coming up with new ideas and ways of expressing messages that I find important.
