My last name for most of my life was Herron, and growing up in Florida, I would see the bird quite a bit. I think I took their beauty for granted as a child, but for the past several years I've come back to these enchanting, dinosaur-like creatures in awe. This painting is one of a series of aquatic birds, all monogamous in nature, all linked by their legs forming family crest-like icons. I'm interested in the familial connections within and beyond these birds. A connection that beckons and embraces all of us. In the words of the poet Mary Oliver, "Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --over and over announcing your place in the family of things."

about the artist

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting my shop and for supporting my work. The creative process allows me to slow down, listen to life’s stories, beauty, humor, questions and give as honest a response as I can muster. I feel more human when I make things, more aware of how strange and wonderful it is to be alive, more grateful. I hope my work can offer a piece of that wonder to you as well.
