Chickens are completely under-appreciated. They’re complex and fascinating creatures, definitely some of the most exotic and fanciful birds in the animal kingdom. Not only are they beautiful, but they have some of the most striking personalities.

Ancona

10/29 Ancona

Chickens are completely under-appreciated. So many people think of hens and roosters as food or farm-country livestock and never bother to take a second look. But I see them as complex and fascinating creatures. Chickens are gorgeous, definitely some of the most exotic and fanciful birds in the animal kingdom. Not only are they beautiful, but they have some of the most striking personalities.

This is the start to a series of daily watercolors, in an attempt to paint every breed of chicken: the majestic Ancona.

Silkie Bantam

Silkie Bantam - GreySilkie Bantam - Black

‘Silkie Bantam’ is, as the title suggests, a portrait of a white Silkie Bantam. I’ve always thought chickens are under-appreciated. When most people think of chickens, they usually see food or farm-country livestock. But in reality chickens are gorgeous creatures, some of the most exotic and fanciful birds in the animal kingdom.

This is a hand-printed, 8-layer silkscreen on grey and black Stonehenge paper, created in a limited edition of 20. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist.

Buff Cochin

Buff Cochin

‘Buff Cochin’ is, as the title suggests, a portrait of a Buff Cochin, a lively and fluffy hen. I’ve always thought that chickens are under-appreciated. While most people think of hens and roosters simply as food or farm-country livestock, I see them as complex and fascinating creatures. Hens are gorgeous, definitely one of the most exotic and fanciful birds in the animal kingdom; not only in appearance, but equally in personality.

This is a hand-printed, 6-layer silkscreen created in a limited edition of 10, with this particular piece printed on white Rives BFK paper. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist.

Rooster

‘Rooster’ is, as the title suggests, a portrait of a rooster. I’ve always thought that chickens are under-appreciated. While most people think of hens and roosters simply as food or farm-country livestock, I see them as complex and fascinating animals. Roosters are gorgeous, some of the most exotic and fanciful birds in the animal kingdom.

Mapping

Mapping

‘Map,’ speaks of memory, feeling, and nostalgia. A map of the United States and Canada, this is not an ordinary map. Instead, I created patterns that represent certain nostalgic feelings that regions of North America evoke in me. Any map is somewhat abstract, depicting geography while utilizing a variety of keys and symbols that people rarely go to the effort to interpret. This is just my own way of dividing the United States into chunks I can process.

This is a hand printed piece that combines an 8-layer silkscreen (the colored patterns) and lithography (the black linework). The lithography is a grease-pencil drawing printed from a zinc lithography plate. This print was created in a limited edition of 10. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist, and this particular piece is printed on grey Stonehenge paper!
