Are you a bird watcher? I love to watch the birds, but I wouldn’t call myself a birdwatcher- at least not the hardcore bird list kind of bird watcher. Those are the types that are super dedicated, who travel the world to check off a rare warbler off their lifetime list (have you seen The Big Year?) I am more of the "set up 5 bird feeders and baths and wait for them to come to my own yard" kind of birdwatcher. And I have seen a lot of birds this way! Yes, I have traveled a little to see migrating birds, and my family trip last May to Maine did include a boat ride out to Petit Manan island to see the puffins at my request. But I digress- it is because I love to draw them.
Art has always been a part of my life, and I have worked in many different mediums.
