SEATTLE — Morgan Zion is a muralist that specializes in creating art with experiences that makes people feel good.
She likes to use plenty of colors in her pieces and incorporate people in her creations. Several years ago, she traded her career as a designer and creative director for a corporate tech company to pursue her dream.
“My art is a representation of my most memorable moments, and just my imagination as it runs free,” Zion said.
She creates murals that are inspired by positivity. You can find her murals in many places in the downtown Seattle area like shopping centers, yoga studios, office buildings, and even at the W Seattle Hotel, where she is currently the resident artist.
“So much of street art, becomes part of that local community,” said Wade Hashimoto from the W Hotel. "Every day that I come by and see her murals, it gives me that sense of authenticity.”
Many sections of the hotel feature her art that expresses music, fashion, diversity, and nightlife.
Morgan draws every day. For her, it's the only way to get better and better at her craft. She enjoys creating art with others, and also believes that everyone has an artist in them, they just need to grab a pencil and express themselves.
“I started at an early age, that was how my imagination started to be expressed,” Zion said.
It's about enjoying, people, and happiness.
“The message that I always want to give with my art is that it's ok to smile and not take everything so seriously.”
Morgan is also a yoga trainer and fitness fanatic, for her it's all about “body, mind, and spirit.”
On Oct. 30th she will be instructing the event W Seattle Glow and Flow Yoga, a one hour glow in the dark yoga class.
