Born in South Africa in 1971, Morrison studied both there and in London, where she graduated from Central Saint Martins. She has had solo shows in Johannesburg, Durban and London and been in group exhibitions in New York and London. She is currently represented by Graham’s Fine Art Gallery in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her work is in private collections in London, Singapore, South Africa and the United States. Morrison lives and works in London.

Her work explores the medium of oil paint and seeks to rely on the intuition of the artist in the making of a work and on the person who views them. Her main interest lies with abstraction and with the formal concerns of colour, form, texture and composition. Her paintings are devoid of content or narrative which preclude any single meaning or view. The artist is interested in the literalness of painting, of comprehending a work in a literal and experiential sense. She sees it as a kind of honesty. It is also about having faith in not knowing, in being confounded.

Abstract art accepts the permanent uncertainties and pluralities that comes with its territory. With painting, as with other things in life, you are always losing possibilities by the choices you make. 

Morrison feels this to be a very exciting thing.
