"Birds are a constant presence in my life. I live and breathe these beautiful feathered creatures every day. I have birds inside my house, in outdoor aviaries, as glass and ceramic art pieces, and I am surrounded by bird books and sculptures. This connection with birds inspires my art, where I select colorful objects and heirlooms, arranging them in a whimsical balance around my avian subjects. My goal is to draw the viewer into the composition, connecting them to the natural world, regardless of the setting.
