About the Artist
Morgan Asoyuf (nee. Green) is a talented young jewelry designer and artist from the Ts'msyen Indigenous group in northwestern British Columbia, Canada. She was born March 24, 1984 in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, to parents Henry Green and Jean Gardiner. Morgan is from the Ts'msyen Eagle Clan from Lax Kwallams, British Columbia.
Morgan's artistic career started with Blanche Macdonald Centres Fashion Design Diploma, and an interest in painting Ts’msyen designs. She carved cedar and alder while working with her father, Henry Green, learning about the properties of the wood and how to properly care for it.
She took Bronze Casting at The Crucible art compound in Oakland, California, where industry professionals taught her both investment mold and sand casting.
In 2010 Morgan began studying at Vancouver Metal Art School under Gerold Mueller, a goldsmith from Pforzheim, Germany. She received diplomas in both jewelry design and stone cutting, learning special techniques such as hollow construction, custom stone cutting, and advanced soldering.
Morgan has studied design and engraving with Richard Adkins. She also attended Revere Academy in San Francisco, California for gem setting courses.
In 2019 Morgan held her first exhibition at the Bill Reid Art Gallery in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The exhibit, titled 'Royal Portrait' features a collection of carvings, jewelry, and portraits by Morgan Asoyuf honouring the Indigenous matriarchs in her life.
