Nelson Morales
In Highschool Nelson Morales would paint houses for the HOA of Newport Beach which lead to participating in several art competitions around Orange County. Then getting a Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of Utah, Nelson spent his time as muralist for the school doing largescale artwork. After College, Nelson worked as an Art Educator for multiple schools and programs for youth and adults. Currently getting a Masters of Education, Nelson hopes to be an inspiring educator for both students and other teachers.
Nelson's current art practice focuses both on the observation and imaginative side of art making. Creating artwork directly from what's in front of the canvas, and capturing the unique landscape of Southern California; to imagining landscapes of different dimensions where space and color can be played with.

This was my first attempt at scraperboard and I was trying to create a picture with dramatic lighting that would make the most of the medium. As it turned out, a lot of the board was left black and untouched to represent the shadows, so it was easier than I thought!

A friend asked me to create a painting for her to give to her sister as wedding gift. She sent me some some ideas of colour pallettes she liked and I used a photo I had taken of the landscape in Oxfordshire as inspiration. I painted the whole canvas bright pink first and let it dry and then painted on top.
