Bird Paintings

I started painting pelicans in 2011 when I was living on Bayou St. John in New Orleans and took to watching them from my front porch. My life was tumultuous at the time– I was suffering from repeated miscarriages and longing to be a mother.  Their presence was calming and hopeful to me.  In April of 2014, I started a painting a day project and out of no where, all birds began to fascinate me– my bird painting series was born.
