Elizabeth Morris

I enjoy islands and the sea, and my work has come to reflect two particular island environments. They are Mersea Island, where I live, and where I have my studio and Heir Island, a small island in West Cork where for years I have spent much of the summer. Sea and sand patterns, boats, pebbles, imprints in mud, seabirds and fish all play a part in my work, and most recently I have become interested in images drawn from biblical references and sea myths and poems. In recent years I have exhibited at the Royal Academy and at ‘Originals’, the contemporary printmaking show at the Mall Galleries. Also at the Barbican in print exhibitions 1996 - 2000, and at the Affordable Art Show, Battersea. In East Anglia I have frequently shown at the Eastern Open at Kings Lynn. In 1999 I was awarded the Coley and Tilley prize by the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, and in 2005 I was featured in the Anglia Television series ‘Coastal Inspirations’. ‘Morris makes a sculptural world of the sea, a rare independent foreboding presence in boats. Dancing rhythms of fish weave through electric blue water’. ~ East Anglian Daily Times
