When “Little Red” was selected as a Top Ten Winner in our Summer 2013 national art contest, Morgan was in 9th grade attending an online school called South Carolina Connections Academy. Morgan has been published in our national anthology an incredible nine times. Not only that, but she has been selected as a Top Ten Winner on multiple occasions.
“My piece…is based on the children’s story Little Red Riding Hood which was one of my favorite stories.” Morgan explains, “I wanted to take this picture from a child-like position to that of a teenager. The wolf is her cape because I wanted to imply that it was a product of her imagination. I made the eyes of the wolf to show compassion and not anger to symbolized her winning the battle with her inner demons. I used the light color of the moon against the dark background to show hope.”
Morgan is hoping to go to an art college to learn more about the many different and unique paths in art, and later pursue one of those paths of art afterwards as a career.
