Cora Ennis Morris is a New England mixed-media artist who utilizes photography, painting and printmaking. She’s fueled by her love of landscapes and the sea and how they play a key roll in the health of our planet. All nature needs from us is to be good stewards and respect our environment. She is currently based in Savannah, Georgia.
Cora’s two signature styles use photography/encaustic and cyanotype/painting/printmaking. It's important for Cora to collaborate with materials found in nature whenever possible such as beeswax, damar resin, and local plant life.
She quickly learned as a child that art offered a sense of comfort and identity for a child struggling to find her place in society. Cora went on to earn a BFA in Painting & Printmaking from Central Connecticut State University. She has had numerous one woman shows, some highlights being the Aetna Gallery at the Butler McCook House, Manchester Community College Women’s Center, and Cedar House Gallery. Recently, Cora was selected to be a part of Liza Pruitt’s “Emerging Artist Showcase 2022”.
Cora has also participated in numerous juried museum shows with the New Britain Museum of American Art and the Telfair Museum. Her works can be found in the homes of private collectors throughout the United States.
A quote from her largest collector to date:
“I absolutely love your work and I connect with it deeply. I love the complexity and simplicity of it”.
