Artists Statement:

I had the great fortune of growing up on a small island outside of Savannah, Georgia. Because of that childhood, I have always enjoyed flora and fauna. This series is an ode to that beauty.  

Some of the birds I depicted are seeing diminishing populations, and I hope that this series is a reminder that we are to be both stewards and a voice for creation. 

These paintings are playful, airy, and whimsical- they are intended to evoke the wonder of a child witnessing them for the first time. 

"For the beauty of the earth
For the beauty of the skyes
For the love
wich from our birth
Over and around us lies
Over and around us lies
 Lord of all to thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise" 
For the Beauty of the EarthFolliott S. Pierpoint
