I had some fun expressing creative freedom in painting the background in oils. Once it dried I felt a bird would look good on it and decided to try doing it in charcoal. Happy with how the bird looked, I felt it needed something else and so I added the nest.
I grew up on a farm in a small coastal city in New Zealand, surrounded by green paddocks, trees and animals with Mount Taranaki as my backdrop. I have always delighted in nature and the act of creating; the two are deeply connected for me. I relish in finding glimpses of beauty in my daily life and this is what I hope to capture in my paintings.
