Original Paintings

My avian art is largely intended to be a portrait of each individual bird.  Birds have unique personality, from their habits to the beauty of their feathers.  My bird paintings include owls, song birds, fowl, parrots, ravens, raptors, pigeons, shore birds, exotic birds, and even extinct birds. 

My saints and royalty series show various birds in regal poses, wearing crowns or enshrined with halos.  I created these works to further explore themes of anthropomorphism, reverence, and the importance of an individual though heavy use of embellishment and symbolism.
