Originally from Great Britain, M. Morgan Warren now lives and maintains a working Studio on Pender Island, B.C. Through her highly detailed, realistic watercolours of birds and animals, she strives to give viewers of her work a special glimpse into the hidden lives of her subjects. During the last thirty-five years she has made an in depth study of the fauna and flora of this region, recording her observations in hundreds of photographs, studies, and notes.
Morgan’s paintings and reproductions can be found in many private collections all over the world, including those of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, 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 featured her work. In latter years Rogers Chocolates has chosen seven of her images for their Canadian Artists’ Collection. Most recently, her watercolour of the Sea Wolf, Takaya, was purchased for inclusion in the Takaya Legacy Collection.
As well as Morgan’s own Studio, her work can be found in locations such as Victoria’s Murchies Tea and Coffee, Adrienne’s Tea Garden at Mattick’s in Cordova Bay, the Village Gallery in Sidney, The Chemainus Theatre Gallery, and Reflecting Spirit Gallery in Ucluelet.
In the last seven years, Morgan Warren has written, illustrated, and published two successful books, “Through Their Eyes and Mine”, and “Nature on the Threshold”, as well an annual Nature calendar. At present she is working on a third book which she hopes to release in late 2022. It is her hope that this book will help educate and inspire children to love and respect the wild creatures and habitat which comprise our Natural World.
