Birds in my Travels

Early birds designs are humorous, inspiring and irresistible. They prompt me to paint my own versions, setting them in green or other scenery.  I began these studies as an art student in Peru, my work influenced then by pre-Inca designs found in pottery, intricate gold figurines and Paracas textiles  (seen below).

My recent work grew from days in Britain, drawing medieval bench ends in East Anglian churches, for a book: Carved in Oak* launched with an exhibition of my drawings at Wingfield Barns, Suffolk UK. in 2011-  Now I search for birds in ancient textiles, ceramics, paintings in museums, churches, medieval building, illuminated manuscripts in UK and Europe.
