Cedric Morris was a British artist, art teacher and plantsman. He was born in Swansea in South Wales, but worked mainly in East Anglia. Cedric grew up in Sketty, South Wales. On leaving school he spent his younger years intermittently abroad, regularly travelling across Europe and North Africa, whilst renting studios in Cornwall, Paris and London. In the 1930s, Cedric and his partner, the artist Arthur Lett-Haines made Suffolk their permanent base, moving to Pound Farm in Higham where his garden became much admired. Morris developed a post-Impressionist style for portraits, landscapes and highly decorative style for still-life.
