Birds are arguably the most accessible animal on earth. Wherever we are living, so are birds. Even in the most congested and polluted cities of the world, birds survive and thrive alongside us. Many times, they leverage us as much as we benefit from them. As I spend my own time interacting with them and learning from them, I feel compelled to tell the stories of those experiences and how they, in many cases mimic our own. What manifests in my work is both a translation of my wordless engagement with birds as well as a painted celebration of them.
