Jeff Murphy is an Associate Professor and the Digital Media/Digital Photography Area Coordinator for the Department of Art & Art History. Jeff is a Charlotte-based artist working primarily with digital media. His creative career began while taking photography, film, and animation courses as an undergraduate at Ohio State University. In fact, he took a number of courses while in school across a range of diverse majors. In the end, it was lens-based image-making that stuck while everything else fell away.
Jeff’s work has been published in a diverse array of publications including WIRED Magazine, World Art Magazine, and the textbook Exploring Color Photography. He has received individual artist grants from the Arts and Science Council, the Ohio Arts Council and the North Carolina Arts Council. In addition to over 40 National solo exhibitions, his digital images, videos, and installations have been seen in the United States, Germany, Hungary, Spain, and Brazil.
Jeff currently teaches digital imaging, interactive design, photography and video at UNC Charlotte. He received his BFA from the Ohio State University in 1989 and his MFA from the University of Florida in 1995.
