Born in Pittsburgh, PA on June 25, 1909, Fay Morgan, after studying at the University of Washington, came to San Francisco in 1930. She continued her studies at the California School of Fine Arts and graduated from UC Berkeley in 1934.
The following year she married artist Farwell Taylor. The Taylors maintained a studio in San Francisco until 1949 and then moved across the bay to Mill Valley where she lived until arson destroyed her home and all its contents in the mid-1980s.
She then moved to Novato, CA where she remained until her demise on Sept. 19, 1990.
A modernist painter, her works include philosophical studies and abstracts.
