The Creative Family: with Jenny Murphy…

Winter is a great time for families to get cozy and creative

Jenny Murphy is an artist, a licensed art therapist, and a mom. As an artist, Jenny has developed a deep understanding of the power of the creative process. Throughout her life, art has served as a sanctuary, an anchor, a place to explore and connect to the world around her. As an art therapist, Jenny has engaged people who have experienced complex life challenges including homelessness, incarceration, addiction and trauma in the arts. Throughout Jenny’s work has been the common thread of the art studio environment to inspire hope and promote healing. She has

witnessed how art can build community, create a collective voice, and initiate positive change. As a mom, Jenny has enjoyed countless hours of art-making with both her nuclear and extended family. These experiences have been incredibly special, intimate and meaningful. Jenny’s hope is to bring the Magic of making art as a family to others by providing unique directives and practical tips for making art a ritual at home.
