Shay MacMorran is a portrait artist and illustrator in Waco, Texas.
Her work is inspired by her love of animals, favorite childhood cartoons, beloved books, and fairy tales. Even her more realistic work conveys a child-like whimsy, full of life and vibrant color.
She graduated from Texas State Technical College with a degree in Commercial Art and Advertising in 2003, but continues her education by following and supporting others in her community. She believes the best art inspiration comes from other artists.
When she isn’t working as a Graphic Designer, Shay is hanging out with her son, Bug, hiking with her dogs: Hunt & Indy, chilling with her cats: Iris & Edgar, reading obscene quantities of books, or creating paintings, sketches, stickers, and other art projects for her home, online shops, and for sale at local markets.
