Morland was born in Liverpool, England and she studied piano at The Royal Academy Of Music, London. Her painting life began much later in America when she attended model classes at the Art Students League, New York. In 1984, Morland moved to Herefordshire. In 1987, she traveled in India. In 1989, she traveled in Peru. From 1991 to '95, she was a member of the Executive Committee of the Women's Art Library, London. In 1992, she moved to Norwich, England. Her work alludes to biology, sex, gender and spirit through color, shape and movement. The female body is often present with nature. Music and Poetry influence Morland's work, which moves from the personal to the universal. She enjoys the scope of modern media, but feels that painting in oils is a necessity and passion.
