Let's learn more about Morgan..
Tell us about yourself, your shop, and what you make.
I'm a Canadian painter/artist born in Toronto and living in Vancouver. My father was a struggling artist and my grandfather was a hobbyist painter who studied under The Group of Seven's, A.J. Casson. I've been painting for nearly 15 years since I took up acrylics during my studies in college. Until recently I didn't know about Etsy. I was introduced to the site by a fellow traveler as she was remarking on a painting I had with me. Since then there hasn't been a day that has passed without my need to peruse Etsy's ins and outs!
How did you get started?
I started drawing at an early age. I was 3 y/o when my mother gave me a pencil and some coloured construction paper. I was immediately hooked and have been drawing ever since!
Tell about your favorite piece.
I don't typically pick favourites, but when I do it's often the most recent piece I've worked on. This is because of the time and devotion I put into each of my pieces. However, for the sake of the interview I'd have to chose this pretty and petite floral painting.
|I do love it and it is among the paintings I'm most fond of.|
It is very pretty indeed! I am excited to share with you some other beautiful pieces from Morgan Ralston Art, check these out!
What inspires you?
Until recently, I had given up painting for some time. So I'll tell you what inspired me to returning to creating. A big dose of SUNSHINE! I spent 10 days under the Mexico sun and on the 2nd to last day something sparked in my head and I woke up wanting to paint! I couldn't stop thinking about images of things I could bring to live through acrylic, canvas and a fine tipped No.2 watercolour paintbrush!
