Morgan, Judith P.

Cultural Group :

A member of the Tsimshian First Nations, Judith Morgan was born in 1930 in the small Gitksan village of Kitwanga on the Skeena River. She began painting while attending the Alberni Indian Residential School. While still a teenager, Morgan won an award from the British Columbia Indian Art and Welfare Society that allowed her to study the designs and carvings of west coast First Nations art in the holdings of the Provincial Museum and Archives in Victoria. She would go onto study art at the Kansas City Art Institute (1952). She returned to Kitwanga in 1983, where she continues to represent in her work traditional First Nations culture.
