Are you a bird lover?

No not those kinds of birds, the feathery kind!.  You've probably guessed by now that I have a bit of a thing about birds, I would probably be described as a bird lover.

Does that have geeky connotations to you? it does to me, I get visions of people in anoraks with binoculars obsessively counting all the different types they see a bit like a train spotter.

I think it's time to reclaim the love of birds let's celebrate rather than count and set free rather than contain.

My latest piece of work entitled Love Birds.  I hand cut parakeets combined with a japanese textile pattern from a geological map of Great Britain. My aim was to capture the frenzy of a group of birds in a tree.  And yes those really are the colours of the map, geological maps are great for crazy bright colours.
