Drummond Murphy

N Dip Textile Design.

My background is in Textile Design, and I studied at Leicester Polytechnic in the UK for 3 years qualifying for a National Diploma in Textile Design and Associateship of the Textile Institute in Design (UK). I returned to South Africa and designed fabrics for the local industry, clothing manufacturers and major retailers.

I returned to fine art spending 2 years at Ruth Prowse in part time modules. I then joined Swainsyard Studios under the guidance of Paul Birchall to further develop my style.

A lifelong career in textiles, linked with the fast changing fashion industry, has allowed  me thrive on change and innovation. This is reflected in the subject matter of my artworks which can range from sprawling landscapes to linear architecture to naïve, humorous characters in still life settings.
