Hi! I'm Morgan Swank and I am an accessories designer and freelance illustrator living in Richmond, VA.
I first fell in love with drawing as a little girl and have never lost my passion to create. I began developing my skills as a portrait artist and my work has continued to evolve into an emphasis in fashion illustration.
