How can you transform your bland surroundings? Morag Myerscough upgrades public spaces, from trains to hospital wards, adding a colorful edge to the otherwise gray settings.
Born and raised in London, she loves exploring the many ways that color, pattern, and words can change urban environments, her mantra being “make happy those who are near and those who are far will come.”
“I don’t like calling what I do a style,” she told Creative Boom. “I have an approach to my work that I have developed over many years in response to doing things I have not enjoyed and want to get more fulfillment from what I do.”
“When I am painting a large-scale project I will call on a team of painters who I have shown my way of painting and they are paid and come and help me in the studio,” she added. “I am very particular and disciplined with the painting as it is often very complex, like a massive jigsaw.”
