About the artist:

Michael Murphy was born in 1970 and raised on the north shore of Long Island in a house that was always under renovation by his parents. Surely he had saw dust in his shoes before he could walk. At age 14 he began working at a cabinet shop, where, under the watchful eye of an old world Italian cabinet maker he gained an appreciation for hand tool work and attention to the finest detail. This experience led to working on many fine wooden yachts and custom home renovations before his finishing high school. Michael first came to the South Carolina Lowcountry in 1989 by way of MCRD Parris Island. In 1996 he returned to Beaufort where he met his wife Jackie and started Dog Creek Design, a custom woodworking and home remodeling business. Today he lives on Coosaw Island with his wife and two boys. His studio o!verlooks the peaceful marshes of the Beaufort River.

Michael’s life long addiction to collecting and saving each and every bit of wood or other possible item for later repurposing has led to an abundance of material from which he draws much inspiration. Fallen trees in the early stages of decay, deeply worn sun bleached driftwood, ancient nail studded long leaf pine beams, sleek modern construction scrap, metal parts from old locks, boat parts, and found brass shell casings are but a few of the components often incorporated into his furniture designs. His concern for our environment as well as his passion for the character inherent in these types of materials strengthens his commitment to using e!xclusively reclaimed materials.

Michael’s furniture has been displayed at various art shows and has been added to a number of private collections throughout the Lowcountry. His work has won several awards including at the 2011 Georgetown Wooden Boat Show where the editor of Wooden Boat Magazine called his entry “one of the sweetest little canoe’s he’s ever seen”. Most recently one of his musician’s chairs was nominated by a panel of judges from among guild and museum directors, curators, and craft industry experts nationwide for the prestigious 2015 Niche Awards and displayed at the American Made Show in Washington, D.C.
