Australorp Chicken Painting

Black Australorp Chicken

During a workshop with master bird painter, John O'Neill, many new techniques were introduced to me. I applied these to ideas to much of my work.

Hummingbird Study

Hummingbird Study

Although fascinated by birds, I never really gave hummingbirds much thought until I read a book that described the migration that some species make, across the Gulf of Mexico, or over 500 miles, in a single flight! This marks the beginning of many images yet to come.

This simple painting has been well received by viewers, so much so that it landed me a project to help develop the interface for an iPhone application. This very bird was translated to digital art and now exists in a new medium!
