the birds which frequented the feeders in front of our house. These creatures,

I am attempting to visually represent these nests I grew up admiring. And through
the process of creating these paintings I am hoping to bring myself to a better understanding
of who and what brought me to where I am today and helped create the “nest” I have made
for myself and the ones around me.
