Gregory + Susan + Owners + Partners for Life

Gregory Morris was raised less than an hour from Pensacola Beach, Florida. When it came time to pursue a career, he headed to the Midwest to study graphic design at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It was there that he met his future wife, Susan Havens-Morris. After graduating with a BFA, he spent the next 28 years in Chicago as a Designer, Art Director, and Creative Director for many of the top ad agencies and corporate, creative shops including Ogilvy One, Foote Cone Belding, Upshot, United Air Lines, and the University of Chicago.

After a full career in advertising and raising two beautiful children, Gregory (and Susan) moved to their happy (honeymoon) place, New Orleans. Now their second career and creation, Haven America, an online wall decor company in its 12th year. Many of the creations were first designed by Gregory and were themed as nostalgic Southern word signs and nautical sea life art. In addition to individual online customers, Haven America creations are sold by shops and larger retail stores, including Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, and One Kings Lane.

Earlier this year, Gregory and Susan opened Gallery Haven, which features original paintings and sculptures of their creation. They see this as the next step in the evolution of their brand, which is a live retail experience that local customers and well their customers nationwide who visit New Orleans can experience.

When Gregory is not managing Haven America, he enjoys playing golf, and tennis and still finds time to walk in the French Quarter like a tourist (with Susan, of course) and remember why they fell in love with this enchanting city.

Artist /Owner

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Susan was raised in the rich international culture of the city. But when it came time to solidify her love of art into a career, she did not have to travel far it was in her backyard on Michigan Ave. Susan polished her creative skills with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and then spent the next 27 years working in Chicago Advertising Agencies as an Art Director and Creative Director. Enchanted by history, warm weather, and a new culture New Orleans became a source of further enrichment. Susan and her family packed up and moved to the Big Easy in 2012.

In New Orleans, Susan and her design partner and husband Gregory Morris expanded their company Haven America, now a 12-year-old company in their Uptown studio. But last year's events spawned them to create a new experience, Gallery Haven digging deeper into their creative roots.

Creating art is what she has always done, and this is a natural evolution. Gallery Haven has the lovely French Quarter feel she and Greggory love. They transformed the gallery space into something a guest feels warm and welcome. The Gallery is a place for us to display our interest in texture, materials, and scale all the things we love to show in our own home's decor. Gallery Haven features painting, sculptural, and print works by Susan Havens-Morris and Gregory Morris.

On top of co-owning and running a successful wall decor company, she still finds time for family, gardening, and renovation of historic houses. Susan's home in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans is shared with the family's three Pugs.
