About Gwendolyn Morgan
Gwendolyn Morgan is a Pacific Northwest poet and artist who learned the names of birds and wildflowers and inherited horsehair paintbrushes and wooden paint boxes from her grandmothers.
As a child, Gwendolyn dreamed of being a naturalist, artist, and writer. As an adult, she imagined painting more realistically. Nonetheless, her whimsical storybook birds and animals have emerged again and again.
Her art has been displayed at Angst Gallery, Art at the Cave Gallery, First Unitarian Universalist Fine Art Show, Mosaic Arts Alliance, Legacy Cancer Healing Center and Salmon Creek Pediatric Rehabilitation Center.
Her painting “Las Abejas son Nuestras Amigas” is included in the Syracuse Cultural Workers Women Artists Datebook 2022.
Crow Feathers, Red Ochre, Green Tea, her first book of poems, was a winner of the Wild Earth Poetry Prize. Snowy Owls, Egrets and Unexpected Graces is a Nautilus Gold Winner in Poetry and a Foreward Indies Book of the Year Finalist in the Nature Category. Before the Sun Rises is a Nautilus Silver Winter in Poetry. Her fourth book of poetry will be forthcoming from Homebound Publications Spring/Summer 2022. https://homeboundpublications.com/
With an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Goddard College, and an M.Div. from San Francisco Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union, she has been a recipient of artist residencies including Artsmith, Caldera, and Centrum.
As an artist, she holds much gratitude for artists she has had the privilege of working with including Susan Bourdet, Flora Bowley, Margaret Hartsook, Molly Hashimoto, Cecelia Henle, Alena Hennessy, Jude Siegel and Andie Thrams, amazing women, artists and teachers who focus on creative expression as a means for healing and wholeness.
