When I received the email that my painting the “The Birders” was accepted to join Birds in Art 2017 exhibition at Woodson Art Museum it was pure excitement for reaching such a milestone. A big happy dance and lasting grin followed for the week. The event was over the top and all the artists were treated like rockstars.
More than 100 worldwide artists comprise the 42nd annual, internationally renowned 2017 Birds in Art exhibition, on view September 9 through November 26 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum.
Still can’t believe my painting hangs on the same walls as Robert Bateman and Carl Brenders, too name a few legends in the show. After the Woodson Exhibit, 60 paintings are chosen to go on a Birds in Art tour from New York to New Mexico, and as luck would have it my painting will go on tour.
I have always loved art and drawing. I studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and then began working for a publishing house as a typesetter and layout artist
