“My bird nest paintings and assemblages celebrate the cycle of avian parenthood – from constructing the nest, egg laying, incubating, hatching, feeding and fledging the young. Then: Ready for Flight! This cycle is condensed into only four to seven weeks.
The last part of the cycle is the empty nest. I honor the success of the parent and offspring in my “Long Gone” series.
The mixed media of these painted nests includes tar, oil paint, sand, found items and natural materials. Some of the nests are more realistic than others. All have been a pleasure to create!”

In honor of THE YEAR OF THE BIRD, an invitational exhibit.
“In 2018, we marked the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird-protection law ever passed. In honor of this milestone, nature lovers around the world joined forces to celebrate the “Year of the Bird” and commit to protecting birds today and for the next hundred years.” – The National Geographic Society.
The National Audubon Society, National Geographic, BirdLife International, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology are joining in this yearlong celebration of birds.
