SHOW DESCRIPTION - “All Creatures Great and Small” – This show is all about the critters we share our lives with… in the wild, and as our companions and family members.  Animals touch our lives in so many ways, and remind us in caring for them what it is to be human.

 

JUDGEAndrea Morris - In her decades-spanning practice, Andrea Morris has explored wildlife and the human form through different materials and mediums. Self-taught, Andrea began painting as a means of dealing with the complexities of life in an everchanging social atmosphere.  In her early work she created drawings of horses and familiar animals and later studied portrait works. Andrea later experimented with abstraction and assemblage in an attempt to free herself from the traditional genre.  She returned to making paintings and watercolors in 2000. Andrea has developed the use of strong patterns and colors to represent the subjects in her compositions and uses the diverse objects to represent thoughts and emotions to tell the story behind the painting

Andrea has been teaching advanced levels of painting in watercolor, oils, acrylic and drawing for more than ten years.  Her work has been displayed and exhibited in many art venues in California and Arizona.

Andrea’s greatest joy has been in sharing her knowledge and love of art with fellow artists and documenting her journey of discovery and fascination in artistic expression.

Andrea has been commissioned to paint many murals and individual paintings for clients across the United States.  www.andreamorrisart.com
