February’s emerging artist profile features Morgan Weissbach. The twenty-one year old is a lifelong resident of Saylorsburg. She is currently attending East Stroudsburg University and is studying Studio Art/Graphic Design. She has been drawing for as long as she can remember.
Morgan works mostly with pen and ink, but also dabbles in graphite, colored pencils, oil, and watercolor and digital painting. She also produces some fine photographs.
Morgan’s favorite subject is fantasy or surreal images. Her bright and whimsical artwork often features animals, from the real, like eagles and deer – and her dog – to the fantastic, like dragons and other mythical beasts. She also does portraits, both real and fantasy. She does not draw inspiration from any one artist, but instead draws what springs from her highly imaginative and creative mind.
You may have seen some of Morgan’s work as you traveled Monroe County. She recently exhibited in the windows at East Stroudsburg Hardware, created a wall mural at Split Rock’s water park and participated in decorating windows for ESU’s Homecoming. Morgan was also one of the artists who represented the Pocono Arts Council in the recent “Flying Free, Birds & The Human Experience” exhibition in the Dunning Gallery at Northampton Community College, Monroe Campus.
Morgan is working hard to get her drawings into galleries and looks forward to turning her passion into a career for life. Considering the awards she is collecting from the art shows she has entered, there Is no doubt that she will go from Emerging to Established artist in a very short time.
