"I wear skirts more frequently than pants because I like the way it looks when I twirl. I moved my life to Portland, OR from Kennesaw, GA. I miss the fire flies, honey suckles and armadillos lying dead on the side of the road. I am marrying the love of my life on July 9th 2011, every day brings me closer to the rest of my life. I have two cats who I adore and a step kitty who I also adore. I love being covered in paint and drawing on things that shouldn’t be drawn on.

I illustrate children’s books. I paint what you would like to see. I write what you would like to read. I am an artist by trade and a dreamer by choice.
I am Morgan Victoria."
