British artist and painter Cedric Morris was born in 1889 in Sketty, Swansea. Originally wanting to become a singer, Morris enrolled at the Royal College of Music. His focus began shifting from a career in singing to painting. Morris went to Paris where he trained briefly at the Academie Delecluse in Montparnasse. Morris also studied at the Academies Moderne and La Grande Chaumiere.
During the mid-1920s, artist Cedric Morris exhibited his paintings throughout London. Together with Arthur Lett-Haines, his life-long partner and fellow artist, he founded the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing. Inextricably intertwining his love of art and botany, Morris is best known for his paintings of flowers. He cultivated a lush oasis inspired by the gardens of Claude Monet.
