About Peg Morris

Peg is a painter and printmaker, working in her studio in south west London. Her work focuses on significant forms, and patterns in natural and urban landscapes. A common thread linking much of her art is decay. Inspiration might come from a weather beaten, decomposing tree stump, a track worn into the landscape by generations of feet, the crumbling and erosion of landscapes or the peeling paint or crumbling stonework on an old or neglected building. Peg finds that the process of etching lends itself to representing these themes as the plate is itself eroded by the acid, scraped and polished, scratched and sometimes cut into fragments. She has recently begun to explore other printmaking methods including collagraphs and lithography. When she paints she often scrapes and sands back layers of paint to reveal layers beneath the surface.


Foundation - North East Essex School of Art 1984-5
BA (Hons) Fine Art (Painting) - Gloucestershire College of Arts and Technology 1988
Peg studied etching at Putney School of Art for a number of years.
