Morgan Fite
Nashville , Tennessee - United States
Oil Painting - Abstract


Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Morgan has since lived a life of extensive travel and exposure to various cultures. After residing in St. Croix for three years, Morgan relocated once again to the United States in 2006 – proudly settling in Nashville, Tennessee.

Her work encompasses a variety of mediums. In addition to using both oils and acrylics, Morgan often incorporates recycled paper, wood, and other materials to add texture and depth to her paintings. She enjoys experimenting with unique color combinations, like the bold juxtaposition of vibrant hues with neutral tones.

Morgan is also an accomplished writer, finding poetry to be another means of deep creative expression and often incorporating the written word with her paintings.

Morgan’s work has been displayed at five local exhibitions and in four installations at local businesses, including Starbucks, Casablanca, and Myridia. Morgan has painted live at Inspire Nashville in The Gulch and completed eleven commission projects...

The Wild Wandering
2014-04-21
T H E W I L D W A N D E R I N G:
A collection of paintings reflecting an artist’s
pilgrimage from Dublin to Tuscany

In July 2013, Morgan Fite left Nashville to paint her way through Europe. Leaving the details, destinations, and route unplanned, she departed with only a round-trip ticket to Dublin, a five-day reservation at an Irish B&B, and the desire to eventually make it to Italy. Traveling with her dear friend, writer and foodie, Jessie Risman, Morgan spent the next five months soaking up the bright green hillsides of Ireland, dancing in the rain on the beach of St. Andrews, picnicking in the parks of London, exploring the ruins of Rome, and living among the olive groves and cobblestone of Tuscany.

Accustomed to creating large works of art, Morgan was forced to adjust to using limited space and tools. She painted on loose canvas, which she occasionally shipped back to the U.S. and later stretched herself. Yet another adjustment came when she decided to transition from painting with acrylics to oils halfway through her time abroad:

“When we arrived in Rome, I knew I had to make the switch. I couldn’t possibly do Italy justice with acrylic paint. It was a frustrating process and a very slow start, but as we settled into life in Cortona, the city above the clouds, oil-covered canvases began to crowd the floor along every wall of the flat.”

The Wild Wandering is inspired by the beauty of the people, lands, and cultures Morgan experienced, as well as the journey of self-discovery, healing, and freedom she encountered within. Excerpts from Morgan’s travel journals accompany pieces in the collection to guide viewers through her pilgrimage from Dublin to Tuscany.
