Artist of Venetian
Todd Warner, Charlevoix Venetian Festival Artist 2014

The Charlevoix Venetian Festival proudly introduces “Venetian Boat Parade Circa 2349 BC”, painted and donated by Todd Warner, to raise funds for the 2014 Charlevoix Venetian Festival.

With warmth, humor and sensitivity, painter and sculptor Todd Warner has been creating his imaginarium of sophisticated whimsy for over 35 years. From life size cowboys and Indians, to butlers and brahmas, to larger than life ostriches and armadillos, Todd’s creations adorn lobbies, living rooms, entryways, offices, zoos, museums – even the Orlando International Airport and the New York State Thruway.

Today Warner resides fulltime on his farm in Charlevoix, Michigan, taking care of his animals and working in his studio. Over the years the Warner’s have raised and rescued hundreds of animals. Warner nurtures the animal’s bodies and souls; it is this compassion that when in his studio, brings clay to life!

“There is an innate sense of humor in my work, but I’m not going for the belly laugh, I just love to make people smile”. See more of Todd’s work at

Todd’s original Venetian painting was auctioned at the festival, Friday evening, July 25th, 2014, 7:00pm, in East Park, following the Queen’s coronation ceremonies. Posters, tee shirts, pins and bags featuring Todd’s 2014 Artwork, is still available through the Venetian office.
