About Artist

Hello my name is Lisa Murphy.

I am an artist and a garden designer.

Following the success of my portrait ‘Aoife and Purdy’ plus other pictures of the family cat, I started to draw pet portraits for family and friends and decided to set up a business.

I am an animal lover and found that I was taking more photographs of my clients pets than their gardens!

‘Purdy’ the family cat (RIP) started as my favourite subject she had her own very distinct personality, see gallery pictures of Purdy in ‘Tickle my tummy if you dare’ and ‘Upside down cat’.

She didn’t suffer fools too gladly and ruled the roost both in and out of the house until her passing.

At present our home is run by 'Tiggy' and her daughter 'Chrome' both have bags of character and charm.

In school I studied Art at ‘A’ level and later went to college where I attained a degree and diploma in Landscape architecture.

I am a Member of the Old School House Art Group in Dunboyne, Co.Meath and the Meath Arts Group.

Associate Member of the Pastel Society of Ireland.

Landscape Restoration Design Ltd is my Garden & Landscape Design company established in 1998.

Full member of the GLDA - Garden & Landscape Designers Association.
