Hayley Murphy is a British artist who lives and works in Margate, Kent, and Philadelphia, USA.
Hayley creates prints with a strong graphic quality, drawn from her affinity for geometry, shape, repetition, pattern, and colour. Her practice hinges on the layering and interplay of these elements, forming the foundation of her printmaking process. Through her works Hayley encourages viewers to navigate the dance between form and colour within her compositions. This captures the delicate balance of both deliberate intention and spontaneous expression in her creative approach.
Notable artists like Bridget Riley, Sol Lewitt, Agnes Felton, Jen Stark, Shannon Finley, and Josef Albers serve as Hayley’s major sources of inspiration.
Hayley studied sculpture and printmaking at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
