Janet Murphy
J. Murphy Designs

A professional illustrator and graphic designer at J. Murphy Designs, I have worked as an Independent Contractor in Idaho since 1990. I have also worked professionally in-house and remotely for corporate creative departments around the west and beyond.

My art and illustration mediums include original watercolors, gouache, acrylic, and I create custom digital illustrations for branding. I acquired many of my techniques through travel and life experience as well as through college classes in Advertising Art and Design. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Information Technology. My current illustration and digital design projects blend creativity, and visual design for digital and print publishing.

A children's picture book

critterstory is a a picture book written by Niki LeClair and illustrated by Janet Murphy. Published in 2018, critterstory features four poems that follow critters in nature with an emphasis on the joy they bring. Learn “I Want a Horse,” the song of little Niki who wants a palomino horse. Wonder at Beulah the beautiful basset hound who lies by the heater (instead of being outside where the dogs could meet her). Imagine the glimpse of sandhill cranes as they fly by, and giggle at a feisty fox as he romps and searches for a mouse below the snow.
