Lillie Morris, born in Augusta, Georgia, continues to enchant
audiences with her profound abstract expressionist style. With a
lifelong passion for art and nature, Morris has dedicated
significant time to exploring her surroundings and capturing their
sacred beauty. The writings of esteemed authors such as Wendell
Berry, Drew Lanham, Karen Armstrong, and Mary Oliver have
greatly influenced her artistic approach and deepened her
reverence for the natural world.
Every day, prior to starting her studio work, Morris embarked on a
solo walk in the woods, forming an integral part of her creative
process. These intentional walks became the catalyst for new
ideas, fostering a profound synthesis between her observations in
nature, her emotional responses, and her artistic expression with
paint, paper, and canvas.
In her latest series, Morris paints from memory, allowing the vivid
imagery of her time amidst the woods and water to flow through
her intuitive and evocative line work, complemented by a rich
palette of emotive colors. Her hope is to inspire others to establish
their own connection with the natural world, facilitating a
restoration and reinforcement of their bond with nature.
