BIRDS

Birding is a passion that I engage in, quite literally, every day. For years, I have been fascinated and inspired by these feathered creatures that I watch daily, and moved by the seeming paradox between their delicacy and their resiliance. From the window of my studio, I can see seven birdfeeders and numerous other attractions I have placed outdoors in hopes of bringing them closer to me, or perhaps bringing me closer to them. I am sensitive to their fight for survival in our contemporary world, and try to do my small part to assist them and tell their remarkable stories. Between the years of 2013 and 2016, I painted more than 100 birds, and in the spring of 2015, I became a Master Birder with the Atlanta Audubon Society. In this gallery, you will find a few bird paintings that are currently in my collection and are available for purchase at the moment, along with some that are sold. Most of the birds I paint today are by commission, so please don't hesitate to inquire about having a commission painted of your favorite bird.
Quoting from the environmentalist Terry Tempest Williams on birds, "... they remind me of what I love, rather than what I fear, and at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen."
