An effort to separate the two lines to make it more clear, both for herself and others. Studio Morran is still trying to find its true voice, it is a place that is still forming itself. So in that sense it feels new. Studio Morran wants to be a place open to most materials and ways of expression, animation, illustration, clay, collage and so on.
