Hi, I’m Morgan Jones Johnston. Welcome to the world of Rugged and Fancy.
Morgan Jones Johnston is an American artist, storyteller, entrepreneur, treasure hunter and more!
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.
Morgan began her art education at the early age of five, later attending the Alabama School of Fine Arts as a Visual Arts major. She has lived and worked as an artist in London, England and Antibes, France, before returning to the Deep Southern experience of her youth.
Morgan is also owner of acclaimed experiential retail brand, Club Duquette with her musician husband and creative partner Duquette Johnston. Morgan & Duquette have had the honor of traveling to speak to universities and groups about the intersection of art & commerce and how to create sustainable small business models as working artists.
She and her creative projects have been featured in The New York Times, Vogue magazine, Wall Street Journal, Southern Living, NYLON, The Washington Post and more.
In Summer 2021, Morgan launched an art collection partnership with Serena & Lily, which was sold in Design Shops around the country, as well as online.
In Summer of 2022, Morgan announced she is writing and illustrating a children’s book called Little Miss Hunny, slated for 2023-2024 release!
