Submitted story

The polls are now open for the 13th annual Bad Art by Good People fundraiser, presented by the Champaign County Arts Council.

Today’s featured artist is Laura Morgan, School Counselor, Triad Middle School

Education: B.S.-BGSU; MS-University of Dayton

Organization Affiliations: OSCA, TEA, BGSU Alumni Association, Falcon Flames, President of DelMax Construction Services

Arts involvement: Supporting all school arts programs, chaperoning MS students on art field trips to Dayton and Springfield. I appreciate all forms of the arts!

Special skills or interests: Avid reader, craft dabbler, and puzzling. I have put on 11 proms! Twelfth will be in May.

Comments about your artwork: My piece “Daisy Warhol,” reflects a lifetime love of crafting as my art. My greatest influences have been my mom and my middle school art teachers. I have learned so much from them, Mrs. DeSalvo, Gail Wilson, and Stacie Dundon. The fundamentals of the color wheel, shading, brush strokes, etc. all contribute to my everyday life and love of art in all its forms!
