Born Glasgow, Scotland, 1971
From 1989 to 1995 Morton studied at Glasgow School of Art, obtaining a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art in 1993 and a Masters of Fine Art in 1995.
She is mainly based in Glasgow but currently spends about a third of her year in Fossombrone in central Italy where ready access to numerous Renaissance works of art and the beautiful local scenery provide a constant stimulus for her work.
Her exhibiting career started early and since 1995 she has featured in more than thirty solo exhibitions and over seventy group shows; in addition to many in the UK, venues include galleries in Sweden, the USA, Germany, Greece, Belgium, Denmark, Italy and Japan. From 1997 she was Lecturer in Drawing and Painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee.
In addition to her paintings Morton has also mounted gallery installations which combine canvases with photography, light, sound, music and found objects. Music is an important aspect of her creative practice and she has performed as a member of two bands: Suckle and Masters of Joy.
