Dwina Murphy-Gibb is an author, artist, and playwright, born in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

Educated in Northern Ireland, she attended Hornsey Art College in England. During this time, Dwina won many an art competition, winning first prize in County Tyrone at merely 10 years of age.

Her first exhibition was held when she was but 14-years old, in Eccles, Lancashire. She also began writing stories at just 9-years of age, performing and winning many a poetry award.

The might of greatest cloaking to protect and make divine, The might of wings for flying to detach from the entwined, The might of changing shapes..


Juggling, not Smuggling, and a Satellite. I remember climbing the wire fence at the back of our house so I could see the train travelling beside the river a few fields away, the same fence my mother bade us climb one night, waking us up, to see the Northern Lights, a rare sighting, that was bright over the North of Ireland.


The Yeats Society, off into the depths of Sligo again, on a pilgrimage to meet there with your man Seamus, that rare Maestro of the Quill, whose words stir hearts, and pluck on spines, his deep voice traipsing poems off the tongue to make minds go still. A hero of mine, born and bred in County Derry, and I next door in Tyrone. I am in awe, and pine to hear him read from Door In The Dark, The Haw Lantern or Sweeney Astray.
