Sculpted Paintings is a term that Ms. Morris uses to describe the unique signature and style of these paintings. Texture creates a layered and complex visual form of depth where light and color interact to create a sculpted image. The artist creates abstractions that people do not see in ordinary life but which they will be able to recognize.
L. Scooter Morris was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she received her early training. She studied formally at the Tyler School of Art and continued her education in Rome, Italy and the University of Southern
