Feathered Friends - BirdLife Australia National Bird Week
In 2014 and 2015 I held solo exhibitions for National Bird Week.
However, in 2016 I decided to collaborate with some fellow artists and curate a group exhibition.
Let me introduce wonderful artists.
I first met this duo in 2014 at my Feathered Heads exhibition. We formed a natural friendship based on our love of birds and our desire that our artwork make a difference to the natural world.
Founded by designers Camila De Gregorio and Christopher Macaluso, Eggpicnic works to educate and inspire. Their vibrant, contemporary illustrations tell the stories of our critically endangered fauna, the environment and our relationship to it.
Lamice is a fellow artist at Platform 72. Her delicate drawings caught my eye and immediately I thought she would be a great complement to this group exhibition.
To quote Lamice:
"I am both an artist and a scientist, and my passions fuel and feed off each other, allowing me to create and educate. I utilise my knowledge of the natural environment in my art, and I use my art to remind my audience of the beauty and complexity of the world around them".
The Feathered Friends Exhibition was a successful feature of National Bird Week 2016 and we donated 20% of sales to Birdlife Australia.
