About the work

Hummingbirds are always a good idea. A bird that is classic and timeless. I love capturing their beautiful movements with my favorite medium, oil paint. Hummingbirds are a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible. They teach us to find the miracle of joyful living from our own circumstances. They are seemingly tireless. Always seeking the sweetest nectar. They remind us to forever seek out the good in life and beauty in each day.

About the work

Birds have caught my interest since I was a little girl. Their diversity are limitless. There are hundreds of different types of bird species in this world. Fact that birds are the last surviving lineage of dinosaurs make them more appealing to me. That's what inspired me to create a series of bird illustrations. This Anna's Hummingbird is one of my bird illustrations collection.

About the work

My Illustrator bird series stemmed from a college graphic design course. This bird can stand on its own or be paired with my other illustration. Freedom of expression is key in my illustrations as each bird portrays a unique personality, style, and dimension. Depth, dimension, and color are also important in my designs.
