Digital Artist/Graphic Designer Robin G. Morgan has been involved in the visual arts for over thirty-five years. She began her artistic journey as a school volunteer, before becoming an educational consultant, digital publisher, graphic designer, media developer, and middle/high school digital arts teacher.
Fabric Melodies are created with scanned fabrics that are selected specifically for their extraordinary patterns. Using Photoshop, Ms. Morgan designs then constructs each digital image–layer by layer—before watercolor details are added. The process is repeated until each digital image is completed. She chose to use fabrics because of their exquisite line/shape, balance, movement, space, color, texture and light. The challenge was to create the most realistic images from fabrics—ones that entice the viewer to visually reach out and touch each tiny detail. While fabrics are such an unexpected medium, they are the perfect complement to Ms. Morgan's beautiful scenes of nature.
