Morgan Samuel Price

At age 15, Morgan knew enough about painting to learn Sumi brush strokes.  No technical issue was going to hold her back. Now, decades later, Morgan Samuel Price has technical skills few painters ever possess.

Her professional career began in 1968 after graduating from Ringling School of Art. She began working at Hallmark Cards as an illustrator.  She worked as art director of the News Herald in Like County Ohio.  When she moved to Ardmore, Oklahoma, she decided to become a fine artist. She lived in a town with no galleries, no museum, no art stores, and an art center.  Morgan left Ardmore with 4 flourishing art stores.  She turned a small town in Oklahoma into a town with a thriving visual arts culture before she turned 30. 

Morgan discovered she loved teaching as much as she loved painting.  Many artists teach but not all see teaching itself as an art.  Morgan learned to explain a single concept many ways.  Most of her students can name the 18 most common design problems.  Morgan still examines every inch of her paintings to assure that she has not made those same mistakes herself.   She remembers you and your work decades later.

Morgan has authored two books: Turn on the Light, a touchstone to Plein Air Painting and Oil Painting with a Basic Palette. She has produced over 14 DVD’s and numerous on-line Video Educational Products.  Morgan has exhibited in over sixty National Exhibitions, Plein Air Invitational Events throughout the country and numerous solo gallery exhibitions.  Morgan is a member of many art societies including the Salmagundi Club NYC, Allied Artists NYC, American Society of Marine Artists and Oil Painters of America.
