As I'm sure you did too, I learned how to play the recorder in 5th grade. "Pop quiz," was the first thing I heard after the bell rang. Our task? To draw and label the parts of the recorder from memory. It took everyone else about 2 minutes to finish the entire assignment, but when the timer rang at 10 minutes, I wasn't even finished with my drawing yet. Rather than scold or shame me, my teacher asked to see my drawing...
It all started in music class.

She seemed to make a big deal about how detailed it was - even down to the proportions and shading. "Morgan, have you been tested for gifted art?" she asked, to which I stumbled to inquire, "Umm... what is gifted art?" You see, this was my first year at a new school that actually HAD an arts program. My previous school had one classroom for each grade of about 15-20 students to give you context. I had never gone to an art lesson in my life... or even considered the thought that "I could" do art. My small-town Louisiana family wasn't the most well-off financially, and we thought art wasn't for "our kind of people." Luckily, my angel of a mother agreed to have me tested for gifted art, and I passed with flying colors on the first try. That tiny spark of potential that another human being saw within me has amassed into an engulfing flame of passion for color, design, and transformation
that's been burning brightly for over 15 years. And that's who I can be for you. To see within you and your business' potential to create transformation beyond your wildest dreams that will never go out of style.
Other interests of mine have come and go, like skiing, UFC training, swimming, and gardening. Painting is the one thing that makes hours feel like minutes. I can't decipher what speaks to me most about art - knowing that no rules exist, there is no one telling you what to do, what can or can't be done, what is or isn't possible... or knowing that the only difference between a blank canvas and a masterpiece is a few colors, paintbrushes, and me. Sure, I have an electrical engineering degree and could do calculus until the cows come home, but nothing has been more constant in me than the dream to transform the world and the lives of others with color and limitless design.
