Artist Bio

A native of Atlanta, GA., Doris Whitten Morgan began showing her work at “sidewalk art shows” in 1972. Today she is one of the published and widely distributed artist in America. Ms. Morgan’s work is often easy to
recognize. Not only is it peaceful and relaxing, but her tendencies to intertwine text with images and to extend her boundaries by using creative mating and her popular trademarks. She has made a name for herself with he unique blend of sentimental verse and beautiful watercolor artistry. Doris now saves verse as they come to her in a special filing system for later use on a painting. The painting then becomes an interpretation of the verse.
Doris studied art formally at The Museum School of Art in Atlanta, but she continues to credit he father, the late John Lovic Whitten, as her most influential teacher. With paint and pen , Doris has fashioned God-given talent into a unique style which is unequaled. She uses many of her own emotion as inspiration for her work. Since most people have experienced some of the same joy of love, and as Doris often states, “:it has taken me 27 years to
become an overnight success I’m just one of those slow-talking, highly driven people, she insist. I will probably leave this earth with a paint brush in my hand—but hopefully a long time from now.”
