I have a show of work installed in the Ford Commons of the Dana Building, School of Natural Resources at University of Michigan through April, 2013. I gave a lecture at the reception last week, March 19, on my creative process, materials and my choice of birds for this show. My 'bird' body of work was a natural fit for the School of Natural Resources and I was delighted to meet a U of M student who works with the bird collection held in the Natural History Museum on campus. She invited/challenged me to visit their collection behind the scenes and I said, "I'd love to! I'll come and draw them!"
