Birds In Print

The language of flight is at once liberating and inspired, reaching the most beautiful part of our human spirit. Birds have always fed artistic imaginings as symbolic representatives of beauty, discovery, transcendance and ultimately freedom.  

This collection combines  some of my own work but many other pieces  that reinterpret selected great works of ornithological artists such as Edward Lear, Elizabeth and John Gould, and James Audobon.

These original illustrations  were made in what is often referred to as the 'great age of discovery' with contemporaries such as Darwin, Wallace and Humbolt.  This time of scientific discovery, preceded the conservation movement of our time.

Now with one in eight bird species threatened with extinction we are no longer just explorers or adventurers  but stewards of the natural world.
