As the daughter of artist Philip Craig, Shannon Craig Morphew was introduced to art in her early childhood. She is recognized for her highly energetic and powerful linear depictions of the landscape, figure and still life. Influenced by Japanese woodblock prints, the artist’s style of active brushwork, minimal colour, and dream-like compositions expresses a very personal creative vision. Influenced by the powerful beauty and visual structure of the Canadian landscape, Craig Morphew successfully captures the visceral and emotional intensity of her surroundings.
Upon completion of her studies at Sheridan College and the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2001, Craig Morphew began exhibiting in both Toronto and Ottawa, which has led to a strong following. She is represented by Loch Gallery in Toronto, where she held her most recent solo show in the summer of 2019.
