Growing up, I lived in the most beautiful setting: in Savannah on a barrier island surrounding the city. I had the privilege of enjoying the flora and fauna, while exploring the water and woods after school every day. I have long loved birds and had a fantastic lower school science teacher who fostered that appreciation. His wife also happened to be our art teacher, so the below photo is definitely an ode to them: thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Eswine for the love and work you put into making our days in (and out!) of the classroom quite magical.

I have committed myself to experimenting and play for 2019, so I started sketching and birds and flowers were the first things I gravitated towards in my sketch work. If I can stick with subjects, I like to grow them into a series, so this is steadily becoming a series that I will offer online for sale March 24th at noon.
I hope you like what you see- so far I have twelve mixed media drawings and am hoping to have between twenty and thirty pieces to offer you all next week.
As always, thank you so much for following along!
