Marilyn Morris has a background in all- level Art Education with teaching experience in adult and children’s art. Morris retired to Cotter ten years ago and opened a bed and breakfast in the home her grandfather built in 1914.
After retirement, Morris decided to pursue her interest in art more seriously. She studied art at ASUMH, and joined several art associations, including The Cotter Art League. She enjoys experimental art and multi-media works.
Her medium is acrylic and wax on rice paper and newspaper. It’s a technique she developed and lends itself to rustic landscapes and an aged look for people.
Every day is an adventure in painting. Morris says, “whether I am painting my surroundings or interpreting my emotions, it’s a labor of love.”
