Brenna K. Murphy explores experiences of loss and grief and their relationship to the body, emotional labor, and the physical labor of making using fiber-based techniques such as weaving, embroidery, and lace-making. She holds a M.F.A. from the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art & Design and a B.F.A. with Highest Honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

A working artist for many years, Brenna has exhibited widely throughout the United States and internationally in community art centers, commercial galleries, and corporate venues.
