I have been on a bird binge of late. Most of the work I am producing is aimed at a large solo exhibition that will be coming in the near future. I have been exploring prairie bird species in paint, glass and embroidery. These works are an attempt to elevate the mundane or unnoticed to a status worthy of our time and reverence - icons. I have been working in series and the series is evolving as I explore this subject more deeply. Works range from mere inches in size to six feet across!
