Krista Morgensen


Krista Morgenson grew up in Nebraska as the daughter of two horticulturalists. From a young age, her self taught art practice was inspired by the natural world, drawing the plants, fungi, and creatures that she encountered on hikes and camping trips, as well as in her parents gardens. She considers experience and observation to be a crucial element to her practice and maintains a deeply instilled wonder of wild places and spirits. Also trained extensively in contemporary dance, Krista continues to perform consistently in New York City as a professional dancer. Her dance practice has been highly influential in her approach to tattooing, as she is fascinated by taking a muscular and physical approach and tie to placing illustrations to skin. She is in fact part moth and part girl, come into the fungal jungle.
