“I was brought up surrounded by music, my father, Henry Myerscough, a viola player and session musician in the 60/70/80’s. He played with the Beatles (named on the white album), Bob Marley, Elton John and all the greats of the time. As a child, the record player in our house was sacred and we had to get permission to use it so that we did not damage the needle! (I am glad times have changed). I now have that record player, it holds many memories and I remain respectful.”

Her work is firmly rooted in a very personal experience of belonging and never fails to entice and encourage people to feel differently about their experience of where they are. Morag’s visual vocabulary is inclusive by nature and its effortless energy, resonates both visually and emotionally with audiences well beyond geographical and cultural boundaries.
From schools and hospitals to cultural hubs and town centres Morag transforms public spaces by creating engaging experiences for everyone.
