Keavy Murphree is a mixed media sculptor, working primarily in ceramics. She enjoys combining precise shapes with organic forms, using a variety of hand-building techniques. Murphree is forever inspired by her children, along with prehistoric and folk art. Her interest in ceramics started at a young age and continued as an undercurrent throughout adulthood. Since 2016, she has worked towards a full-time sculpture practice after more than a decade working in design and product management. She received her B.F.A. in industrial design from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. Murphree lives and works in Nashville, TN, with her family.
