M. Morgan Warren has been painting over 24 years and is regarded as one of North America’s finest painters of birds. Her award-winning watercolour works are known for their natural charm, anatomical accuracy and meticulous detail.
Her paintings are found in many private collections, including that of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Shortly after the surprise royal request for presentation of her work to Philip in person, Ms. Warren was granted the rare privilege of making a personal gift of another of her paintings to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. (Royal protocol ordinarily prohibits personal gifts to the Monarch).
At exclusive invitation of the DeYoung Museum of Fine Arts in San Francisco, she demonstrated Audubon’s techniques for visitors to the national Audubon Birds of America Exhibition, March 1996, the first public exhibition of his paintings in over 100 years.
Her work has illustrated the covers of many publications, including the Sierra Club Foundation 1997 Annual Report. Canadians will recognize her 1994-5 and 1995-6 Save the Children Fund cards.
While the waiting list for her original paintings is almost two years, her 33 fine art prints and artcards of 29 species are available. Her studio is located in North Saanich near Victoria, British Columbia, on the east coast of Canada’s Vancouver Island near Seattle, Washington.
