Margaret Morrison


Best known for her detailed still-life and surreal figurative paintings, Morrison’s figurative imagery is expertly lit to invoke a foreshadowing element to the composition. Developing her still-life palette from a more muted tone to the brilliant colors seen today, Morrison’s super real, larger-than-life paintings of food, for example, are good enough to taste! She is also a tenured Professor of drawing and painting at The University of Georgia and has been recently teaching in Italy a few months each year.
