Artist Bio

Doug Morris

Douglas K. Morris was born on June 6, 1949 in Bradford, Pennsylvania and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1964, at the age of 15, Douglas left Phoenix to hitchhike around the U.S. During that time, he made ends meet doing such odd jobs as sign painting. He studied life drawing at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Morris has worked with the well-known portrait artist, Alex Fournier, and shared a studio with New York illustrator, Kenneth Duey. He illustrated the children’s books “A New Look at the Pilgrims”, and “The Black Duck” published in 1976 by Walker Publishing of New York. He also did book jackets for Houghton Mifflin in the same era.

 

Although most of Morris’ previous work has been realistic, his recent work merges abstraction with realism. He provokes himself to work out all of the details to represent reality, solving all light and perspective problems to give his work a dimension beyond mere composition.

 

Douglas K. Morris’ work can be found in many private and corporate collections including: Paramount Studios, National Medical Enterprises, IBM, Bank of American, Reliance National, and Giant Industries. Morris has also exhibited at the famous International Book and Print Fair in Frankfurt, Germany

Daydreaming influenced my desire to create as a kid and still does to this day.
