Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

John Morris, born in Dublin, Ireland in 1958 is a full-time plein-air painter in realist style of reflected light on water.  He lives in County Limerick, where he works out of his studio at his house in Abbeyfeale, close to the landscape that he paints.  He has been married for 19 years and has three children.

Morris began painting in 1997 with no formal training in drawing.  His works include a wide variety of waterscapes, seascapes, and rural landscapes, as well as townscapes such as his recent outstanding views of Venice.  All these subjects are captured en plein air in a semi- Impressionist style.

Like many Impressionist landscape painters, Morris intends his paintings to convey two things: first, his boundless love of nature, along with a fascination for light, atmosphere and distance; second, his compositional ability, an essential quality for rapid outdoor painting.  He describes his habit of making "quick oil or pencil sketches when something has caught my eye! Mornings and evenings, come rain, hail or shine I will stop and do this, gradually putting together a kind of...visual diary which I use as reference for my paintings."

He has had solo shows in venues such as Kenny Gallery (Galway 2004, 2008), Waterford Festival (2005), Garreth O'Connor & Associates (Dublin 2006), Daffodil Gallery (Skerries 2007), Gormleys Gallery (Belfast 2007), Barbara Stanley Gallery (London 2008).

In addition, he has participated in a large number of group exhibitions throughout Ireland - north and south - the UK, and the United States.
