Hi, I’m Morgan Jones Johnston. Welcome to the world of Rugged and Fancy.

Morgan Jones Johnston is an American artist based in Birmingham, Alabama. Her current bodies of work are an exploration of the role of the artist as the mirror, how we see ourselves, and how we want to be remembered in legacy.These themes are explored through her experiential new media portraiture experience.
