Other Names: Morag Webster-Lesarge
For Morag Webster, an early interest in drawing evolved into a quest for expression in a variety of media including painting in oil, watercolours, and pastel, as well as forays into the production of sculpture using various materials. This drive has also led her to work as a theatre and film technician, as a scenic painter, and a props and sets builder.
