About the Author

Troy Murrah holds a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas, Austin. He has 20+ years working in production and set design, building and designing recording studios, and saving up material (wood, metal, doors, window frames, etc.) leftover from these jobs along with discarded cabinetry and shelving left on the roadside. Initially as a way to feel closer to his mother (quilter and educator Judy Murrah) after her passing, Built Quilt (wood quilts) ended up being a great way to use up the reclaimed material and bring new life to the old. Taking on a life of its own, Built Quilt continues to expand with new artistic additions created on an ongoing basis. Troy's work has appeared in Arte Morbida, The Jealous Curator, Aspire Design and Home, Selvedge Magazine (blog), and Voyage LA.
