Abby Morgan was born & raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design, and spent her junior year in Rome through the European Honors Program. She graduated in 2002 with a BFA in Illustration. Her time in Rome taught her that she had a love for travel and in 2004, she spent 10 months in Japan, teaching English. She returned to Indianapolis in 2005 to live and work. Her western and eastern travels greatly influence her artwork in vastly different ways and she continues to draw on both.
She lives with her husband Bill and his son Jacob, whose precocious weather knowledge is present in everyday life.
