About portrait.jpg

I'm a San Francisco-based illustrator whose work is influenced by my love of natural history, vintage book illustration, and the environment.

I studied drawing and painting at the California College of the Arts, and spent my early career working in-house for magazine and book publishers, illustrating and art directing for some of the top selling titles in college science.

Clients include Macmillan, Storey/Hachette, Cengage, Pearson, Scientific American, Nature, The Scientist, Cosmos, Australian Geographic, and Bay Nature. You can read about my work process on my guest post for Scientific American.

Note that there is a fantastically talented New York Times best-selling children's book author and illustrator (and winner of a gazillion illustration awards) also named Kelly Murphy. Her lovely work can be seen here.
