Pierr Morgan talks with BIMA's Greg Robinson about book illustration, collaboration, and more. Produced by Bainbridge Community Broadcasting.
The work of award-winning children’s book illustrator Pierr Morgan (The Squiggle, Dragon Dancing) is featured in this diverse and engaging exhibition. Imagine includes two hands-on arts activities for all ages, plus over forty works drawn from regional art collections and the artist. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the entire portfolio of original paintings used to illustrate The Nine Days Wonder, written by Marilyn Hollinshead.
Check our Meet the Artist summer schedule for opportunities to engage with the artist.
Pierr Morgan is a painter who writes and illustrates children’s books. As a youngster in Seattle she worked puzzles, designed paper dolls, colored in coloring books, and wrote poetry in a lockable diary. In the sixth grade, when her teacher read Where The Wild Things Are, Pierr chose her career.
For the next twenty-five years she took art, writing, and storytelling classes in high school and at the University of Washington, until finally studying illustration and painting at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.
Her whimsical gouache paintings, oil still lifes and abstracted landscapes hang in homes around the country, and thousands of children all over the world enjoy her picture book illustrations.
