Morag studied Sculpture at Sheffield Hallam University from 1999 to 2001, gaining a BA in Fine Art. During her time at Sheffield she experimented with different mediums, including casting rocks in copper and building large wooden structures. Whilst at University she was commissioned to make a working piece of sculpture for Rotherham Children’s Hospital, which was complicated but also fun.

In 2015 she began working and assisting her father David Reekie, who is an international Glass Artist. In October 2015 she started to make her own cast glass work, using the lost wax technique.

Her work reflects her family life; these mischievous, colourful glass sculptures have evolved from drawings inspired by playing with her children. She wants her work to be bright, child-like, and playful, each one subtly hinting at the emotions, feelings and thoughts she has in day to day life. The trolleys are carrying objects, found or made by herself, to represent certain chapters in her life. She would like the viewer to be drawn to the sweet, cheeky, individual characters of these mice and hope they raise a smile.
