What's It All About Alfie?

The creative process is somewhat magical in that thoughts become images on an art canvas or words transferred into books [and now of course digital eBooks].  Murphy's artist statement sums it up " Using layers of color and the placement of lines to depict energy, movement and space, the result is the creation of an abstract image which is meant to evoke the imagination.."  The same applies to his books, which in place of color and images, his words and pictures bring to mind a variety of stories taking the reader on enjoyable trips through time and space.

Murphy's books may also be viewed and purchased on Amazon.com under the search words djv murphy.
