Kate Morris – Painting

Kate Morris is a Port Hope artist working in acrylic on canvas and paper. In addition to painting, her art practice includes contemporary art quilts and fabric collage.

Throughout her career, Kate has enjoyed and prioritized working with people to share her knowledge and love of art and craft.

A quilt instructor for many years and co-author of an introductory quilt manual, Kate explored many aspects of surface design, including batik to enhance her fibre art practice.
Kate was instrumental in organizing and implementing lunchtime and after school art programs for elementary children.

In addition, she set up and facilitated art programs for adults with mental handicaps and physical disabilities.

Currently, through an Ada Slaight grant from OCAD University, Kate is working on a project with patients at Providence Healthcare in Toronto. The art workshops with patients will culminate in a large mural to be displayed at the hospital and later auctioned off as a fundraiser at Providence Healthcare’s Gala in November of 2018.

Kate studied fine art at the University of Guelph and drawing and painting at OCAD University and has exhibited in Alberta and Ontario.
