American artist and Ringling College Graduate, Morgan Davidson draws stunning colorful illustrations of complicated characters and figures, which showcase her impressive talent. By carefully curating dynamic and layered subjects, such as a mineral, a turtle, an eye, or a mouth among many other figures, Davidson thoroughly exposes her talent of working with texture, watercolor and colored pencils. Each portrait delivers a skillfully composed hyper-realistic product with a vibrant touch.
Ever since she was little, Ariel knew she was going to be a marine biologist, just like her father. It wasn’t her dream, but she knew it made him happy. She even joined her school’s swim team, the Flounders for him.
But after taking an Anthropology class in her freshman year, she knew she had to change her major. Her sisters think it’s because of Eric, the cute T.A for the class, but that’s not true. Ariel loved studying humans and different cultures. It was just so fascinating learning about people, and she knew this was the world where she belonged. She couldn’t wait to go someplace exciting on the annual anthropology trip; maybe get a souvenir for her collection!
Her father wouldn’t be happy about it, but he’ll come around…. eventually.
