Hi! I’m John Dennis Murphey. And yes, I’ve started using my middle name, Dennis. There are just too many other rascals out there with the same moniker. Note too, there’s an “e” in Murphey, which hopefully will further cement my identity!
Since 2000, I’ve had my own architectural practice called Meditch Murphey Architects. So when I’m not architecting at my architectural office you can find me working away at my studio at Artists and Makers 2.
My studio work is focused on the visual arts where I employ a variety of media – watercolor, acrylic, oil, pen, ink and graphite. At the center of my work is my fascination with light and space, something I’ve also pursued in photography.
Recently I’ve taken photo workshops with Ira Block, Alex Webb, David Allen Harvey, Norman Mauskopf and others at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshop. This spring I will be a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome, trying to capture some of this great city’s spirit!
So with these three passions of mine, I have these three websites!
MurpheyMarks plays host to my mark-made images.
MurpheyWorks is all about images I’ve pulled through a lens.
Meditch Murphey Architects is a gallery of some of the projects I’ve helped design.
