We are ecstatic to announce that Morgan Stanton is the newest addition to PicFoams™ Independent Artists Program! In the Independent Artists Program, artists from all over the country partner with us to bring diverse and eccentric pieces of art to you! Each artist has their own unique story that drives their art in a unique direction. It is a great honor to be able to share their story and their vision with you.
Morgan is a bright and passionate individual who loves to challenge the realist limitations when it comes to her art. Morgan's piece, In the Jungle, perfectly portrays Morgan's vision of showing realistic elements in a fun and illustrative way. The bright colors and engaging patterns compliment one another perfectly, making an over-all captivating piece that everyone can admire.
Nature is the highlight in many of Morgan's art pieces. Whether it be tigers, flamingos or avocados, Morgan's love and admiration for Mother Nature plays an important role in her artistic vision.
Learn a little bit more about Morgan and her artistic vision with this Q&A section:
Q: Where does your inspiration come from when you are working on a new art piece?
A: My inspiration comes from all around me. I go to an art school so I am constantly surrounded with other artists. I also follow a lot of varying artists on Instagram. I seem to focus on drawing things that I like at the moment. For example: Flamingos, plants, and my cat.
Q: What would you like people to take away from your art? What messages are you most interested in portraying or conveying?
A: I always want people to walk away from my art with a smile. I want everyone to know that there’s always room for joy in life.
Q: How has your art developed over the years?
