Warren back at Kitty Coleman festival

Warren's watercolours of birds adorn many private collections around the world, including those of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

In May 2010, M. Morgan Warren vowed that a compound fracture of her right wrist would not prevent her from attending the Kitty Coleman Arts and Bloom Festival.

She even produced three small paintings with her hand encased to the thumb and fingers in a fibreglass cast.

“They weren’t too bad,” she says, “though I couldn’t get the control I normally can as the cast was in the way.”

The good news is her wrist healed completely and she is headed to this weekend’s Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens Artisans’ Festival.

Known for their exquisite detail, Warren’s watercolours of birds adorn many private collections around the world, including those of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

Warren also has a degree in English and creative writing and has combined her abilities in the calendar to give us an insightful new perspective in paint and words on the rare moments in avian lives — ones which we humans do not usually see.

Warren will display her new originals, giclees and calendar for sale and talking about a coming illustrated children’s book in Santa’s Barn at the beautiful Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens at 6183 Whitaker Rd.

For details about the festival, phone 250-338-6901 or visit www.woodlandgardens.ca.
