Christopher Morris Turns Everyday Objects into Extraordinary Works of Alphabet Letter Art!
Chris Morris is the photographer behind The Alpha Canvas. Though he did not set out to be a professional photographer, he has been enjoying photography professionally for a number of years. With his wife, Christa and son, Silas, the Morris family searches the countryside, looking for interesting objects that will make unique letter photographs.
In doing so, special attention is paid to make sure that no alphabet photo is staged or manipulated. Recently, with the addition of the gallery wrapped canvases, Chris has had the opportunity to showcase some of his other photography.
Taking the photographs for each of the backgrounds as well as the letters allows him to photograph and display beauty in a multitude of ways. In addition, Chris takes care and pride in the finish work of the artwork. From the printing and stretching of the canvases to the cutting of the mats and making the frames, Chris performs every aspect of this work.
With each purchase from The Alpha Canvas, 10% of sales will be used to directly support various Christian humanitarian and orphan relief agencies. The Morris family has a heart and a calling to continue to be involved in the Christian mission field and has hopes that The Alpha Canvas will be a fundraising catalyst for stateside and overseas mission trips.
In addition to the 10% of sales that is donated, all proceeds from the“Hope” canvas goes directly to Orphan Voice, a Christian orphan-relief ministry. The Morris family had the great joy and privilege of spending over two months in Vietnam working alongside this organization, and they hope to continue to support the work of this ministry.
