Morgan Coleman

BIOGRAPHY

Morgan was born in Provo, Utah (June 30, 1970), and grew up hiking, fishing, and camping in the Rocky Mountains with his father, and artist, Michael Coleman. At home, he watched his father paint, and eventually, he spent a year at the University of Denver studying printmaking/etching. At the University of Utah he studied biology, taking only one oil painting class while there. However, fine arts again entered Morgan's life when in 1994, he began a fine art digital printmaking company in his basement, becoming one of the first "Giclée" printmakers. In 2004 he rediscovered his artistic talents and started painting again, concentrating mainly on landscapes. Morgan is married with 2 children, 2 dogs, and resides in Provo, UT.
