WHIMSICAL, COLORFUL & SURREAL
BIRD ART
Colored Pencil Drawings and Acrylic Paintings
Bird Lady








As an artist of many styles, techniques and mediums, I am always
experimenting with new ways to have FUN while creating my artworks
and working in colored pencil and acrylic paint have been two of the most
pleasant of all mediums.
 
Images of birds, meshed with human traits and characteristics, thriving
in colorful, surreal and whimsical environments, have been the subjects
of my most recent creations.
 
For me, the processes of drawing and painting are like opening wonderful
gifts you aren't expecting. I may imagine how the finished artworks might
look before I even start to create them, but once I begin, and daily
inspirations affect the added details, I never know what my drawings or
paintings will show, or the stories they will tell until the moments of
completion have been chosen. It is an evolutionary drawing and painting
process that I use to amuse myself and the viewers of my artworks.
 
I feel I am positively influencing people by inviting them into the imaginative
worlds of my drawings and paintings,surrounding them with colorful
environments, entertaining them with whimsical imagery, and then, sending
them back out into the "real" world with a dose of happiness and enlightenment.
