Ashley Morgan created a studio practice to explore the curiosities of everyday life. As a sculptor, painter, spatial designer, and educator, she positions her work between fine art and design to create a delightful, personal experience. Inspired by awe, joy, and the magic found in the ordinary, she revels in the literary works of Romantic and Surrealist poets to influence her creation of objects and spaces that are thoughtful and full of wonder that one might not expect.

Morgan studied sculpture and spatial design at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (MFA 2010) and sculpture and painting at Arkansas State University (BFA 2006).  Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including public art projects in Florence, Italy and Seoul, Korea.  Through her research, Morgan has also been selected as a fellow for the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary Nohl Fellowship and awarded a Sonnabend Fellowship for the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles.  

She lives and works in Pittsburgh, PA with a team of builders and thinkers to realize every bespoke project.  Morgan also teaches Art History and Studio Art courses to build the next generation of thoughtful creators. Please reach out if you're interested in working together to bring a little magic to your space.

Arguably the highest impact you will make on your space is to define the walls, ceilings, and floors with color, shape and/or texture. 

Paint  |  Wall Covering  |  Tile (wall and floor)  |  Carpet  |  Hard Flooring

 

Space Planning

Through in-depth analysis, different layouts and 3D models can be created to show you how your space could be configured to provide you with an optimal space for both aesthetics and function. 

 

Space Planning for Selling Real Estate

Rather than update outmoded spaces such as Kitchens or Bathrooms before selling a home, consider offering a couple new layouts for potential buyers to visualize and “walkthrough” the space in a 3D model.  Provide Space Plans only or make it available with Finish Recommendations.
