Bria Murphy

Bria Murphy was born in Sacramento, California in1989. Drawing was always something that came naturally to her. After being homeschooled up until the 9th grade, her high school art teacher urged her to start painting. It became a hobby for her, and wasn’t something she took seriously up until 2017. That year she chose to walk away from her acting and modeling careers, and became a full time artist.

The decision to pursue an art career changed both her art and her life. She began to draw inspiration from her beliefs in Ancient Astronaut Theory and her desire to empower women, specifically in the African American community. Bria paints portraits of regal, celestial beings that evoke power, and remembrance, while depicting parts of the universe in their bodies. Bria has partnered with two of her closest friends and fellow painters to create their art company ArtUs. She currently works out of her home studio in Los Angeles.
