Full name

Anna Morris




Somerset, UK


I am an artist based in Somerset. I make small scale works using paint and collage in response to landscape.


Originally from Oxford, I have been an art teacher for many years alongside my art practice. I completed an MA in fine art (painting) at Wimbledon (University of the Arts London) in 2006. Moving to Somerset in 2016 marked a much closer relationship with the surrounding landscape, both the sea and the Somerset levels.

My work explores the transient effects of light, investigating mark-making and landscape through print, painting and collage. I aim to create works that evoke the experience and memory of being in the landscape - of changing skies and atmospheric light.

My process is a combination of painting and collage, resulting in small scale works on card and plywood. The collaged fragments I use are sometimes many years old and I use a wide range of experimental means to produce these through a process of addition and deletion. I often incorporate fragments of prints - monotype, stone lithographs, dry point, collagraph and more recently screenprints. I collate and sift, selecting and combining, layering and reworking until the composition settles into its final form.
