Seaford came to the attention of the team at Duke Dexter while shopping at the store in Covent Garden. “I shamelessly wear the accessories that I hand paint,” she says, “including my floral trainers and handbag. I was able to walk into their store and walk out with the title of resident artist.”

Archie Hewlett, CEO of Duke & Dexter, saw her appointment as a significant addition to their brand: “We wanted to give people the opportunity to create an emotional relationship between our products and their life experiences. Morgan’s talent and dedication to her craft captivate clients.”

While Seaford has a portfolio of artwork suggestions to show clients, you can also bring anything to the table to put together a design, from a photograph to a doodle or just a vague concept. Her style is distinctive. “I juxtapose vivid colors and detail,” she explains. “I use the thinnest and smallest paintbrush to turn shoes that I work with into something more than a commodity.”
