About

Art by Morgyn Stranahan

I have lived in Milwaukee or the surrounding area all my life. My childhood was spent on a “hobby” beef farm. There I was taught work ethic. I remember thankfully the open fields and watching starlings swim in the sky, immensely fortunate to be so close to animals, tall climbing trees, areas of un-“developed” land, woods, and many siblings.

Once as a small child I became lost in a woody field. Night fall was swiftly approaching and I grew anxious. I began to wander frantically. Startling a rabbit out of tall grass I felt my heart race and panic growing. Not knowing what to do, I started to cry. Directly in front of me were wild strawberries. Filled with joy at the discovery I picked a few, stood, and found my way home. I remember the flavor clearly. Tiny and powerful, the sweetness expanding a secret sense of joy in my heart during such an unhappy time.

At the age of 15 I was assigned the task of sorting through some of my mother’s belongings after her death. It was then that I discovered a set of her paints. I took them into my room to use and there began to seriously study visual arts. She had cooked exquisite meals, sewn, quilted, and arranged flowers. The set of paints surprised me and I wondered what she would have created with them. She was loving, imperfect, creative, and an incredibly brave woman. I am proud to call her my mother.

From there I pursued art training more aggressively and attended college at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD). Feeling that drawing is the core of all visual art forms I chose it as my major. Without developing drawing ability visual communication with any tool would be unsuccessful. With drawing ability one gains the skills that can be applied to any media with time, effort, and clarity of thought. The community of artists I was introduced to there and the range of skills taught are of great value in my artistic career.

Since college I have continued to work. Relishing the flexibility of developing skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, the written word, collage, film, digital photography, language, and dance. Each in its own way helping me to learn and improve. The creative process of learning to tell a story with different tools has enabled me to communicate with more people. The gratitude for what I learn from each viewer can not be expressed enough.

There is always fear and frustration when pushing myself past my comfort zone forcing myself to learn and grow. It is simply part of the process and I enjoy the challenge and opportunity to improve. What would be the point without struggle? Life would grow boring. The fascination and also tension of the needed balance in this process. Constantly readjusting like standing on a balance board. Imaging the direction I wish to go and then willing it so.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.


Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of artwork, for example), if you contact me directly.


Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

...as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time
...if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
...as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Service.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies and my accountant for tax purposes. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.


Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: seven years.


Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.


Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
