I have always loved combining the detail work of a still life with the whimsy of adding a bird to the composition. My main focus is to take objects of meaning or beauty & paint them in their best light. Telling a story through reflections, shadows & different textures.
I started painting birds into my still life pieces around the time my Mom got really sick. She was confined to her bed most days, so my Dad did his best to make their backyard a beautiful oasis of flowers, fruit trees, bird feeders, baths & houses. I have countless memories sitting with my Mom watching these tiny little creatures show off their huge personalities. It was so much better than tv! I miss my Mother every day, but by continuing to paint these birds I have a lasting tribute & constant reminder of what an amazing Mother she was.
