Molly Murphy Adams bases her work on concepts of hybridization, pairing the needlework techniques of beadwork and embroidery with printmaking and paper media. Murphy Adams’ work illustrates the blending of cultures, identities, and histories by juxtaposting dissimilar method, media, and narratives. Murphy freely borrows from multiple disciplines to create fiber and mixed media arts pieces reflecting her background and traditions. Murphy Adams was raised in western Montana and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Montana in 2004. She has made Tulsa, Oklahoma her home for nearly a decade.
