"Jinx Morgan's paintings of bright tropical flowers, gorgeous bays
and verandas dabbled with bright sunlight and color-rich shadow are sunny places that
make you want to curl up like a cat and soak in the rays and the view."
- Savanna Redman


"Warm, sandy beaches. The vibrant blue of the ocean. A hammock rocking in a salty breeze.
These are just some of the subjects that watercolor artist 
Jinx Morgan lives—and paints—for.  
Jinx now resides in the Caribbean on the island of Tortola
in the British Virgin Islands. Her paintings are as carefree and relaxed
as the lifestyle there, often showcasing the strong sunlight of the tropics,
as well as their bright floral colors and shady palm trees."
Cassie Behle
