David Morris

David Morris was born in Knaresborough and studied painting and printmaking at Harrogate School of Art, before continuing his studies in painting and sculpture at the Slade School of Art London 1959 — 1961 where his tutor was Keith Vaughan.

After graduating he began teaching foundation studies part time at Bradford  College of Art. In 1963 he was appointed full time at Harrogate College of Art where his responsibilities included teaching printmaking across the college. Many of his students have continued as practicing printmakers themselves. After retirement from full time teaching he continued  to run an adult printmaking class at Harrogate College until 1995. Since that time David concentrated on his own work as a painter and printmaker.  Etching was his preferred printmaking method, particularly aquatint.
