Morgan Allender is a South Australian contemporary painter. Profiled by Vogue Living Magazine (“Next Generation”, September 2013) as “one of today’s brightest crop of design and art talent", she works primarily within a framework of large-scale, gestural paintings. 

Her work reflects an ongoing exploration of the parallels between the materiality of oil paint and the chaotic elements of the natural world.  Drawing on a multitude of sources, including botanical symbolism, ecology, talismans, herbalism, and the landscape genre, she is most interested in the spiritual and psychological interaction between people and plants, as well as long-standing gender associations with women, flowers and plant magic.

Following 3 years as a painting lecturer at Adelaide Central School of Art, in 2011 she founded the internationally acclaimed Tenth Meadow Studio, expanding her artistic projects to include large-scale botanical installations both for exhibition and private events.  In 2016 and moving forward, she has shifted her practise to concentrate solely on the medium of oil paint.

Her work is held in the Artbank collection and private collections in Australia, USA, Japan and Italy.
