Much of Elizabeth Morris' work stems from her involvement with two islands. Mersea Island on the Blackwater estuary where she has her studio, and a tiny island off the coast of West Cork, where, for over thirty years she has spent part of the summer. Working from detailed location drawings of the shoreline, Elizabeth creates closely textured etchings of stones and rocks, flotsam, shorelines and boats.

A member of the Greenwich Printmakers Association which she helped found, she is also an elected full member of the National Society of Painters, Sculptors and Printmakers, and of the Printmakers Council. Elizabeth has exhibited at the Royal Academy, with the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers, and with the Royal Society of Marine Artists. Her work is held in a number of public collections.
