We sat down with Morgan Rollinson, the talented artist behind our latest Artist Spotlight collection, for a fun little Q&A sesh. Enjoy!
Q: How long have you been painting?
Q: What is your biggest source of inspiration as an artist?
MR: I love Matisse and the way he used brush strokes and color. I also find a lot of inspiration from fashion and textile designs.
Q: If you could trade places with any person for a day, who would you pick and why?
MR: Ina Garten because she's
Q: If your personality were a color, which would it be?
MR: Maybe blue because it can be bright, bubbly and outgoing but also a cool mellow tone.
Q: What is your favorite quote?
MR: The whole poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling.
Q: What did you use as inspiration for your collection with Moon & Lola?
MR: Color was a big inspiration and component in my collection with Moon & Lola. I achieve a whimsical and abstracted style by pulling out the colors that I would mix together to paint an object, and instead, separately applying them to the subject--which gives this collection a fresh, bright, and lively feel.
Q: What is your favorite fashion trend right now?
MR: Wide legged jeans! Check out these from Madewell.
