M. Morgan Warren lives and maintains a working studio at Canoe Cove Marina, North Saanich, B.C. During the past thirty years she has made an in-depth study of the fauna and flora of the region, recording her observations in hundreds of photographs, sketches and notes.
Best known for her highly detailed realistic watercolours of the creatures of North America and Great Britain, she strives to give the viewers of her work a special glimpse into the hidden lives of her subjects.
Morgan’s paintings and reproductions can be found in many private collections all over the world, including those of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth ll and HRH, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. In 1996 she was the special guest of the DeYoung Museum of Fine Arts in San Francisco where she demonstrated the techniques of John James Audubon for visitors to the national Audubon Birds of America Exhibition. Save the Children Fund Christmas cards, the international Sierra Club Foundation Annual Report, and Ducks Unlimited, among others, have all featured her work. Since 2014, Rogers Chocolates has chosen six of her images to be included in their special Canadian Art Collection.
Already a published poet with a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing, Morgan released her first book, "Through Their Eyes and Mine", in 2014. It sold out, and she is now at work on "Nature on the Threshold", a journal which will describe and illustrate her experiences and observations of the wild creatures and plants in the area around her Studio over the course of a year. This is due to be released in 2018.
"I’m pleased to learn that my painting of three young Chestnut-backed Chickadees has been chosen by Rogers Chocolates for one of their 2018 tins."
