• Amelia Morris is a photographer and mixed media artist working with themes including identity, memory, and self-perception. Her imagery's autobiographical content is expressed through both literal and symbolic self-portraiture and what Amelia lovingly calls "low-grade performance art."

    Amelia graduated with honors from Ball State University in 2008. Her photographs are included in collections at Ball State University and the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. She is an active member of the Postcard Collective, an international artist postcard exchange group. Amelia was a 2013 Robert D. Beckmann, Jr. Emerging Artist Fellow through the Arts Council of Indianapolis. She won a "golden ticket" scholarship to attend the Photolucida portfolio review festival in 2013 and was a 2014 Critical Mass finalist.
