Local artist Jackie Morgan


YOUR JOURNEY AS AN ARTIST: I was born in Texas and had an unusual upbringing compared to my friends and acquaintances, but that will be a story for another day. I am a mother of three boys, all of whom have graduated from Oxford High School. I took art at Gadsden State and also worked under the instruction of Tommy Moorehead.


YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST: Frida Kahlo. Her work is more based on her life experiences. She’s not painting for anyone else. She painted to release her emotions.


YOUR ART: My style is a blend of impressionism, folk art, and abstract. I’ve done several group art exhibits, including exhibits in the New York and Fort Lauderdale areas. I paint all of my large abstracts at home. I go outside on my back porch and spread out. I really like taking commissions where the client gives me an idea and allows me to have my own take on it. I have one right now. It’s 30”x40.” I know it’s going to be a bird. And it’s going to be funky.


AND FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO LEARN: I teach art classes and host “Canvas Parties.” I also work with other instructors to offer classes in oil painting, glasswork, photography, and sketching.
