It is always all about the birds.  I live and breathe these beautiful feathered creatures every day of my life.  I have birds in the house, birds in outdoor aviaries, glass birds, ceramic birds, bird books and bird sculptures outside surrounding my home.  So I paint them.  I select colorful objects and heirlooms and arrange them in a whimsical balancing act around my bird subjects.  I hope to connect the viewer to the natural world by bringing them into the composition no matter what the setting.
