Lee Morais

Artist + Lee Morais

I have always been an artist, from finger painting in kindergarten, from a Master's degree to this morning, I have always had paint under my fingernails. When I attended Tulane University, I was the first male undergraduate art major at Newcomb College and was fortunate to have Hal Carney as a teacher and mentor who provided me with the example of life as an artist/teacher.

After getting an MFA at Indiana University, I taught painting and filmmaking at Michigan State, University of New Mexico, Towson University, the Maryland Institute of Art and The University of Maryland Baltimore County. I have been a teacher, painter, filmmaker, exhibit designer, and museum administrator.

The quote under my picture in my high school yearbook said: "Art is the secret to life." I believe it and have tried to live it. Art is my religion.
