Featuring The Artwork of Morgan Ralston
Hi Morgan! So tell us, when did you know that art was your thing?
My mother handed me a crayon when I was 2. I pretty much instantly knew that I wanted to be an artist from then. I remember telling my mother that I did when I was a bit older. Only about a year into doodle drawings with Crayola and tempera paints.
Do you have a favorite medium?
I don’t have a favourite medium. But, I do work mainly in acrylic. I’ve done some excellent realism portraiture in pencil and willow charcoal, though.
What’s your favorite part of the art making process?
When a piece of art starts coming together and it comes down to the finishing touches. Up until that point I’m usually quite scared I’m going to mess it up!
I can’t really pin-point a specific inspiration. Getting a lot of sun typically charges my battery but I find I do a lot of my work on rainy days… I do love the rain. It’s so soothing and reminds me of drinking tea at my cottage in Ontario.
Making people smile. I like to use warm and inviting colours that I think make people feel good when they see my art.
My art is mostly found in personal collections around the world. I do have a piece displayed in the admittance office at Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario. My website can be found here – www.morganralston.ca/
