Morgaine Faye is a multi-disciplinary artist, designer, engraver, and bench jeweler based in Portland, Oregon. Holding a BFA in Illustration, she has been showing her paintings and sculptures in galleries worldwide since 2010.
Jewelry design is the perfect nexus of what draws Morgaine to art-making, "It contains endless possibilities for storytelling, involves the mastery of rare skill sets, and is enriched by a vibrant, diverse, and engaged community. I enjoy that jewelry can be a rebellious declaration, a way to challenge and converse with the world through personal symbols and iconography."
Thematically, much of Morgaine's visual art explores conflict, inner turmoil, and dynamics of power. She utilizes her own symbolic visual language that combines natural elements, and historical objects, alongside commanding and alluring forms and figures.
