Morgan continued to work in the fashion industry until 2006, when she received a grant from Vancouver International Airport, and added wood-carving to her set of skills. Her work is currently on display in the International Departures area. In 2007, Morgan assisted Haida/Salish carver Jordon Seward in the creation of a 30-foot memorial totem pole for Vancouver’s missing women of the Downtown Eastside. In 2010, Morgan began studying at Vancouver Metal Art School under Gerold Mueller, a goldsmith from Pforzheim, Germany. In 2014, she had a major solo exhibition at Vancouver's Bill Reid Gallery titled Ts'msyen Transforming, which displayed examples of her hollow-form jewellery.
