Artist Statement

What’s up with the pigeons? I’ve been rescuing lost and injured domestic pigeons for three decades, but I’ve only recently started to bring their images and stories to life through whimsical mixed-media pieces using materials as scrappy and resilient as they are. I want to encourage people to see these birds’ true characteristics: delightful, smart, and deeply feeling. I donate a percentage of sales (usually 50%) to pigeon rescue organizations, primarily Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoptions.
