Hello readers, Angela Murphy here. I’m so excited to be sharing with you my love for art & design! Just a few details about me, how I got here and where I’m headed. I grew up in a very small town in Michigan, small on culture but big on nature. I spent a lot of my time camping with a sketchbook in hand, stealing off to remote areas and drawing. I had a strong desire to be surrounded by art but didn’t have a direction as to how to make that kind of world for myself. I started my path at Savannah College of Art & Design then derailed by way of life experiences living in several different states and a 3 year journey in Germany. Then fast forward to many years later and I found my love again in Interior Design. I graduated with a BFA in Interior Design at Harrington College of Design in Chicago. I moved to Chicago in 2000 and live with my patient and supportive husband, my spirited and ever inspiring son and daughter, our dog Sunday and new family addition Tootsie the turtle. I have been in the design industry for 12 years and love it. I am continually learning each day and hoping to share with you some of my adventures, thoughts and ramblings while hoping to learn a few tricks from you all too! So please share, ask questions, and make suggestions because after all, this is a work in progress and hopefully a beautiful journey for all of us!
