"Finding beauty in the unexpected, Elise's works begin with a simple line drawing and, with each layer of translucent paint, blur the edge between our natural and abstract worlds. Elise Morris is a working artist who explores nature’s point of view while she is particularly attuned to fleeting moments of growth and change. She works from a deep desire to learn from her natural surroundings. Elise currently lives and works in Northern California but she has exhibited and traveled extensively. Her work can be found in corporate and individual collections throughout the U.S. and internationally. Elise is also the founder of The Studio Work, a blog in which she documents studio visits and interviews with Bay Area Artists."
