14 x 17 inches; tempera watercolor and ink on paper


I have loved Toucans since I was a child; fascinated by their crazy beaks and beautiful colors. A true bird of jungle paradise.

Series Inspiration:

A collection of watercolor and ink paintings of birds. Birds have an exquisite and powerful essence of song, community and flight. Birds seem to escape many of the laws that bind us, including gravity. Many cultures believe that Birds form the link between Earth and the heavens, with the very lightness of their being. With strong colors and bold lines, I’ve attempted to enliven these images with both bird energy and totemic impact. Enjoy.
