She continued her studies later in life with Karl Knaths, Blanche Lazzell, and Un'ichi Hiratsuka. She moved to the Washington, D.C. area in the 1930s, and remained there for the rest of her life, though she exhibited widely elsewhere. A specialist in woodblock prints, she also worked in oils, watercolor, and gouache. Organizations with which she exhibited include the Society of Independent Artists, the National Academy of Design, the Philadelphia Water Color Club, the Provincetown Art Association, the Washington Print Club, the Washington Printmakers Society, and the Washington Water Club; she also belonged to the Society of Washington Artists, the Philadelphia Color Print Society, and Boston Printmakers. From 1973 until 1974 she was the subject of a solo exhibition at the National Museum of American Art. Warthen was associated with the Provincetown Printers during her career, and frequently summered in Provincetown. Married to Lee Roland Warthen, she died in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Three pieces by Warthen are in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. A painting, Ladies Luncheon, is owned by the Cape Cod Museum of Art.
