Who am I?
My name is Morgan Swank and I am a freelance illustrator with a passion for realism. When I'm not at my drawing table, I love running, traveling, and reading a good book. I am also a little obsessed with my old lady corgi, Ginger.
I first fell in love with drawing as a little girl. My dad would trace Minnie Mouse for me to color in and I thought it was magical! After graduating from Minnie Mouse, I began developing my skills as a portrait artist and my work has continued to evolve into an emphasis in fashion illustration.
Where did I go to school?
I graduated with a BFA in Fashion Design from Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts.
What is it that inspires me?
I am constantly exploring new ways to accurately represent textures and textiles through different mediums and techniques. I enjoy finding the sweet spot between the accuracy and precision of portraiture and the loose, instinctual style of fashion illustration. Creating art makes me happy, and I hope that I can pass on that joy to those who view my work.
