This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Mark Diederichsen, Las Vegas, Nevada, who is a collector of this artist's work.

Geer Morton was Born in Maine in 1935. Morton began painting as a child, and as a young man he gravitated to California and immersed himself in an art movement now known as the "San Francisco School" or "Bay Area Figurative", which included artists Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Diebenkorn under whom Morton studied at the San Francisco Art Institute. The movement was characterized by colorful, broad brushed, semi-abstract studies of everyday scenes, using a flattened perspective. His work is still very much in keeping with that style.

He works in acrylics, and quite often paints outside en plein air. He currently has two studios, one on the west coast in California and one in Maine, painting half the year in each. He has held the positions of Chairman of the Design Department and Instructor of Drawing and Painting, both at the San Francisco Art Institute.
