Born in Montréal, Quebec in 1893. Died in Rawdon, Quebec in 1986. Kathleen Morris RCA studied painting by taking private courses with the Gardiner sisters in Montréal. She then enrolled at the Art Association of Montreal School, where she took courses with William Brymner from 1907 to 1917, and spent two years studying with Maurice Cullen. In the early 1920s, she was a member of the Beaver Hall Group. She lived in Ottawa from 1922 to 1929, but returned frequently to Montréal. She exhibited her canvasses at the exhibitions of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, the Art Association of Montreal and the Ontario Society of Artists. Genre scenes, markets and landscapes were her preferred subjects. Her work was admired in Canada, England and South America. However, throughout her career, she only ever had one solo exhibition, in 1939.
