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? 

MR: Painting has always been a hobby of mine. I studied design in college and spent a summer in Italy painting figures. While I work full time as a designer, I turned my painting passion into a side hustle at the beginning of 2018 and have been growing my art business since then!

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 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.
