About

Estelle Morgan is a Pittsburgh-based, abstract painter working mainly in large-scale watercolor. Having come to the United States from western Canada, her work continues to be inspired by the light and minimal forms of her native environment.

 

Morgan's work has been exhibited at museums such as the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art, and the National Museum for Women in Washington, D.C., as well as solo and group shows in Scotland, Nairobi, Toronto, Hawaii, New York and Pittsburgh.  Her work is included in private, pubilc and corporate collections in the U.S., Canada and Israel.

 

"Although abstract, I feel that my work is strongly rooted in nature.  I grew up fascinated by the awe-inspiring vastness of the prairies, the horizon and the breathtakingly bright, clear Saskatchewan sky.  Working in watercolor, especially, allows me the fluidity and immediacy of drawing, and at the same time, the transparencies and sublety that help to express light and color.”     — EMM
