Jorie Morgan has spent most of their life creating work in a variety of media (dance, music, theater, performance art, painting and printmaking). They grew up in Southern Vermont, and then moved to Ohio to study dance at Oberlin College, where they were awarded the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts. After returning to New England, Jorie embarked on a 27 year career dancing, choreographing, and teaching dance and movement in Boston. Between 1996 and 2009, they received ten “Best of Boston” awards from Boston critics, and a Tanne Foundation Award in the Arts. They were seriously injured during a performance in 2011, and since then have focused their creative skills in the field of visual arts. They have been a selected artist for the Northampton Biennial in 2015 and 2017; and had a print selected to be part of Stand Out Prints at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis, MN in 2018. As a master teacher, Jorie has taught for over 35 years with students ranging from age of 2 to 87 at preschools, art schools, camps and Colleges. They are committed to green printmaking processes, and have been experimenting with natural pigments and inks for several years. Their prints are created almost exclusively with Akua inks and/or their own handmade natural inks. Jorie happily resides in the beautiful hills of Colrain, MA with their wife, visual artist Whitney Robbins, and their very spunky dog, Maisy.
