Jamie Morris

Sessional Instructor, Visual Communications

“Draw from life. Learn the rules of perspective and classical lighting. The combination of practice and theory will take your drawing skills to the next level. These same drawing skills will be essential for representational painting. If you can’t draw it, you’re not going to be able to paint it.”


Jamie Morris has been a practicing freelance illustrator and oil painter since graduating from ACAD in 1997.

A select client list includes the names Canadian Pacific, Parks Canada, and the Glenbow Museum.

Jamie has taught in ACAD’s Visual Communications department since 2003 and also teaches landscape and portrait painting in ACAD’s Continuing Education program.
