Biography


Orange County California based plein air painter, Sandra Morrison, likes nothing better than to gather up her easel, brushes, paints and paper and go outside in nature to paint.  Since the first grade, art has been a constant in her life and watercolor her first love.  After graduating from San Diego State University with a B.A. in Fine Art, she worked full time to support herself and still pursued painting landscapes and figure drawing to keep her skills sharp.   
 
She prefers going out with a group and then you find her off on her own further along the trail or under a tree.  Her style has evolved to constructing shapes, deconstructing by erasing most of the pencil marks and then painting intuitively from nature in front of her.   Her paintings are a study in fluidity, movement and luminosity with her use of transparent watercolors.  Recently she has expanded to having a studio practice experimenting with different subject matters and pastel.
 
In 2021 she became Treasurer and chair of the Membership Committee for her painting club, Southern California Plein Air Painters ( www.socalpapa.com ).
 
Since 2015, she has been an art instructor for the Treasures Program at Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California and an art facilitator, helping people with Alzheimer’s watercolor paint.
