What I Love Wednesday: Artist Elise Morris

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

Elise Morris is my favorite artist right now, hands down. You can view Morris' website here and her instagram here. I promise it's worth the visit.

Here is a little about her, from her website:

Elise Morris is a working artist exploring nature’s point of view, particularly fleeting moments of growth and change.  Finding beauty in the unexpected, she works from a deep desire to learn her natural surroundings.  Elise begins each piece with a simple line drawing, and adds layers and layers of translucent paint.  The resulting paintings and drawings explore concepts of nature, at the edge of abstraction. 
Elise received a B.A. in painting and printmaking at U.C. Santa Cruz in 1997, and is the recipient of the Hyde and Benteen Irwin Scholarship for excellence and promise in the visual arts.  She lived in the Dominican Republic as a Peace Corps Volunteer from1998 until 2000.  In 2005, she received a Master of Fine Arts from the JFK University Arts & Consciousness program in Berkeley, CA.  She has exhibited extensively, and has work in corporate and individual collections throughout the U.S. and internationally. Elise currently lives and works in Northern California.
She uses all colors really but I am drawn to the vibrant pinks and blues. That being said, here are some of my favorites....
