As i unpacked some of my things at the new studio it felt as though i was discovering old friends. These birds and birdhouses were part of my MA midway show, September 2008 when i showcased an interpretation of my Hawthorn tree in my garden which i love to work under (weather permitting), a constant source of inspiration and entertainment. Birds visit to feed, rest and have the odd natter , each revealing their own character or personality.
The raggety crow that sauntered up and down the fence reminded me of an old rastafarian!
Two doves nested and reared their young chicks, so gentle and very pretty.
