Judy Morris

After a long career as a neuroscience researcher, I became a full time artist, representing the world around me in fine detail and larger than life sized drawings. Plants in my garden and the nearby parks and bushland quickly became some of my favourite subjects, and I often follow the life cycle of individual plants. A recent and ongoing project involves recording and representing the vast array of native species of terrestrial orchids in the Adelaide Hills. Using graphite and coloured pencil, I enjoy rendering fascinating plant forms and textures at the macroscopic and microscopic scale.

I have held four solo exhibitions and have been a finalist in local, national and international prize exhibitions, including the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize. My 2015 exhibition ‘Floribunda’ included poems by Ian Gibbins inspired by my botanical artworks, which were published together in an accompanying book.
