We are thrilled to introduce our newest artist to the Dogwood Hill collective! Meagan Morrison is a Canadian-born, New York-based fashion illustrator, brand ambassador, and the founder behind creative illustration studio and lifestyle brand, Travel Write Draw.
Meagan started Travel Write Draw as a blog in 2010 as a way to manifest her dream profession of traveling the world and illustrating the journey through a fashion-art lens. Since then, it has evolved into an immersive brand, garnering thousands of community members, and led to creative illustration partnerships with the world’s leading fashion and travel brands. Select clients include Andaz, Tory Burch, Condé Nast Traveler, Dior, DVF, Emirates, E!, Harper’s Bazaar, IMG, Louis Vuitton, Montblanc, The Wall Street Journal, The Met, Vanity Fair, W Magazine, and The Ritz-Carlton.
Meagan has been featured as a top fashion illustrator to follow in several revered publications such as The New York Times, InStyle, Elle, and VOGUE while Travel Write Draw received the 2016 Bloglovin’ x H&M Award for Best Design Blog. When she isn’t on a plane flying to her next partnership, she is making art inspired by her travels in her Williamsburg studio.
We have included our Q&A with Meagan below in addition to a peek of some of our holiday products featuring Meagan’s artwork in our newest collection. As you will see, Meagan’s affinity for travel shines through in each of the holiday suites which were created around some of her favorite cities: London, Paris, and her home, New York.
