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.
