William Edward Morris (  Canadian) was born in Montreal and raised in Montreal's Outremont neighborhood.  The stately architecture which abounds this historic and venerable part of the city had an early and profound effect on the artist, as is in evidence in his paintings' portrayal of inner city life.

In his formative years, Morris studied at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts (Montreal) under one of the renowned "Group of Seven"  Canadian artists Arthur Lismer. In secondary school in Montreal he was greatly influenced by the famous Canadian artist  Anne Douglas Savage.  Morris later went on to a notable and longstanding career as a professional Architect and practiced for many years.   Having combined his own feelings of the inner city with interpretations of today's and yesteryear's nostalgia he has accomplished a unique style which is evident in his paintings.

Morris' paintings are a blend of impressionism and realism. His work reveals a keen insight into the elements of architecture and life's daily place within its context. They reveal scenes of Canadian and American cities embracing both pastoral and bustling city urban environment. Recently Morris has developed a love of painting garden scenes which he calls "gardenscapes". These paintings are either oils or acrylics on canvas or masonite. Morris has traveled extensively and spent much of his time painting Canadian and American  scenes.

W.E. Morris paintings are held in many private and corporate collections in Canada,  the US, England, Japan  and other overseas countries.

Morris makes his home in Florida for  part of the year, travelling,  painting, and participating in  Art   shows.
