Artist Bio

         Morgan McGill is a mixed-media artist from Louisville, Kentucky. While studying contemporary and historical painting in Spain, she began her #collageoftheday project and has been in love with mixed media ever since. In her art, McGill examines the typical roles of women found in American society, particularly associated with Purity Culture. She continually asks the question, "What are women capable of when they come together?" She loves walking the line of the typical "border" in 2D art, expanding beyond the boundaries that keep us from understanding one another.
