Morgan Green was born on March 24, 1984 in Prince Rupert on the coast of British Columbia. She was given the Tshimsian name of ‘Lu’uth’ when translated means “Eagle who stays near the nest”.
As the daughter of internationally-renowned artist Henry Green, she has been given the advantage of watching her father and being exposed to his craft since childhood. Her mentors over the years include Alano Edzerza, Jordon Seward, Dave Jack and Richard Adkins (brother of Haida artists Alvin and James Adkins).
Mogan received more formal training when she enrolled in 2003 in the Blanche MacDonald Centre’s Fashion Design program where she learned colour theory, illustration, drafting, and clothing construction. She was honoured with a grant in 2006 from the YVR Art Foundation after only a few years in the fashion industry. This is when she was involved in wood carving, and her work is currently on display at the Vancouver International Airport departures area.
In 2007, she participated in the creation of a 30ft memorial totem when she assisted Haida/Salish artist Jordon Seward in creating this pole for the missing women of Vancouver’s downtown east side.
