Katie Louise Morris was born in Devon, England.  Raised on Vancouver Island, then later moving to Alberta to study Equine Science and Agricultural Business at college; Katie spent ten years on the prairies, working in agriculture, until she discovered her love for ceramics while living in Lethbridge.  Among good company, Katie spent all moments possible at Casa, the community studio, developing her skills.  Leaving to travel and further her (unofficial) education, she spent time in Texas working with Bub Vickers, who while mentoring her work with pottery, also introduced her to bronze sculpture.  Back on Vancouver Island, Katie enjoys a life close to nature; dividing her time between gardening, her studio, and a border collie named Rudy.
