There is a romance about bird life which is irresistibly attractive to artists, as well as otherness.

The Book of the Bird: Birds in Art, 2016
'The Book of the Bird: Birds in Art' celebrates the bird in art with an elegant, international collection of paintings, illustrations and photographs, featuring all kinds of birds from the smallest tits and wrens to colourful exotics.
Interspersed though the illustrations are short texts giving background to the pictures and information on bird species. I was really pleased to be asked to contribute to this publication by Angus Hyland and Kendra Wilson. I contributed 'Tree Life' and a double page spread 'Flower Forest 2’.
