I have been a self employed artist for more than 40 yrs working predominantly as a picture maker with all my work involved with nature wishing to show it’s beauty, fragility and ability to reflect the best and worse about us.
The picture I am showing is called,’We are all Individuals’ and portrays a Starling produced in many varied mediums to emphasis the difference in the creating as it must be for the young birds growing in their varied nest sites, with or without siblings or one parent or two. The idea came about because we have a Starling that lives in the kitchen with us he was found when only a few days old pink featherless and with his eyes shut we fed him he grew opened his eyes saw us and thinks he is human. He is much loved is very noisy and the source of my inspiration for this picture.
