For about 20 years I have been collecting decorative papers. I mostly made greeting cards to send to my friends. Then suddenly in August I met Cheryl Brown, a local paper collage artist, and she sparked a passion for making birds.
Again I started with cards, but quickly started mounting them onto cradle boards. I am totally smitten with the amazing number of birds, their colorations, their personalities.
Some of mine come quite directly from real life birds, but many come from fantasy inspired by the paper and colors. I hope you enjoy their magic. Hopefully they will make you smile and appreciate, yet again, nature's pure joy in creation.
