Birds thrill me, as they have countless writers and artists. Many of my etchings and other artworks employ bird imagery, the owl being a favorite. Having found myself with piles of bird images that I’d created for other projects, I decided to do a large collage book to celebrate the birds. Where would we be without birds to delight, intrigue, inspire and serenade us? How curious and magical the sound of bird—as testified to in the book which uses text by Robert Bly, Emily Dickinson and Carly Simon. We can only
listen in wonder and praise.
