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. 

WHY ART?

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 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.

If you want to know more about me, like any of the hobbies I mentioned above, or are also obsessed with corgis, let's get coffee!
