Hitchcock Health Care March 2013 - Colleen Morgan
Photographer Colleen Morgan to exhibit at Hitchcock Health Center
Aiken Artist Guild member Colleen Morgan spent her childhood just outside Lexington, SC with her parents, famous artists Danny and Mundina O'Driscoll. She grew up surrounded by all different aspects of art, at the same time developing a love of nature. Colleen dabbled in pen and ink, colored pencil, photography, poetry, writing, music, and dance; finally settling on photography when her father gave her a digital camera for her 16th birthday. Now taking long walks in the woods when the leaves are changing color, watching the sunset, or listening to the rain splatter on the leaves, Colleen takes note of the things most people would walk right past and not notice. She wants to change all that... her dream is to open others' eyes to the whole world of beauty, which surrounds us.
Colleen has been featured in a coffee table book, "Signs of Life", published by The International Library of Photography, and featured several times at the Batesburg-Leesville Public Library.
Her photographs have also been featured at Juniper Restaurant in Ridge Spring, SC and The Neighbor's Cafe in Batesburg, SC. The exhibit of Colleen's photography will be at the Hitchcock Health Center throughout the month of March. The Hitchcock Health Center address is 690 Medical Park Drive, Aiken, SC. Hours are M-F 5am-9pm; Sat 8am-6pm; Sun 1-6pm.
