Brenda Murphy

Brenda Murphy’s love for the West is evident in her sensitively rendered drawings of horses, cowboys, and ranch life. She’s a multi-award-winning artist who achieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Texas at Arlington then worked for years in graphic design and illustration.  From this foundation she moved on to establish a career in fine art, exhibiting in top galleries such as Trailside Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Jackson, Wyoming, the Settlers West Gallery in Tucson, Arizona, and Texas Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.

Brenda has received numerous accolades for her artwork: the 2003 Patron’s Purchase Award at the Bosque Art Classic in Clifton, Texas; the 2005 Patron’s Choice Award at the Western Visions Show at the National Museum of Wildlife in Jackson, Wyoming; the 2006 Museum Purchase Award at the Desert Caballeros Museum’s Cowgirl Up! Show in Wickenburg, Arizona; and the 2008 Patron’s Choice Award at the National Cowgirl Museum’s Heart of the West Show and Sale in Fort Worth, Texas.   She has been featured in major publications such as Art of the West, Southwest Art, and Western Horseman magazines.

Born and raised in Texas, Brenda fosters a close relationship with area ranchers who provide inspiration, resources, and a valued critical eye to ensure authenticity in her work.  She and her husband, Tom, reside in Arlington, Texas, where she maintains a studio in her home.
