ABOUT


T.C. Murphy was born in Walkinstown, County Dublin in 1953. He went to school in Drimnagh College which he left at the age of 16 to take up an apprenticeship in the jewellery trade with Irish Diamond Jewellers. After four years he became restless and travelled to Denmark. Here he worked initially as a cutler, then became a forester and even spent some time labouring in a steelworks. It was during this period that T.C. began to paint. He subsequently moved to Christiana, an experimental commune south of Copenhagen where he devoted himself to his art. He spent four years in the artist’s colony and sensing a Celtic impulse coming through his work, he returned to Ireland in 1988 to get closer to his roots.
