Margaret Murphy is a visual artist based in Los Angeles, California. Her work focuses on topics like femininity, sexuality, and identity in a post-social media culture. Murphy’s art uses bright colors, lighting, props, and aesthetic accents to create visceral responses within the viewer. Be it a negative or positive reaction to her work, Murphy hopes her art prompts dialogues around gender, the male gaze, and beauty standards. Photography is Murphy’s main artistic medium; however, she also creates image and text collages and digital art made with artificial intelligence tools.

Murphy earned her MFA from the University of Hartford’s Limited Photography Residency in 2021.

​Her work has been shown in exhibitions in the United States, such as in Los Angeles, New York City, and the Washington, DC, area.
