Meet Morgan

When I was a little girl, I remember researching what the name “Morgan” meant. I was happy to learn that it is Welsh for “bright sea”, “of the sea”, and “dwells near the sea”. And that’s exactly me; you can find me wherever the sea is.

I grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, spending all my free time on the Chesapeake Bay. My best memories are boat days, sitting on the bow, feeling free with the wind in my hair. I was more excited to get my boater’s license than my driver’s license.

I am currently studying at University of Maryland, College Park. When I put down my pencil and homework, I pick up my paintbrush and sketchbook. I put my heart into everything I do and I happily embrace the term ‘studentpreneur’.

My Work

I love working with all types of medium and design. My favorite process is currently acrylic on canvas, but I have worked on and with watercolors, murals, patterns, stickers, glassware, logos, and invitations. Along with painting, I currently teach artistic workshops and birthday parties. I love sharing my work with others and creating work that makes others happy, as well as bring out the creativity in others.

Artist Statement

Travel has the ability to make feel people rested, to take a break from their day-to-day routines. There’s nothing better than kicking your feet up on vacation and having no agenda.

I try to tie these feelings into my work; to bring a little piece of vacation to a canvas. I like when people look at my work, can take a deep breath, and feel relaxed.

I am inspired by my travels, especially to tropical destinations. I love exploring the lush, greenery of palms paired with the bright, blue ocean.
