A mouse called Birdie is raised by a family of birds. She goes out into the world to seek her fortune. Along the way she encounters beauty and joy but also fear and death. Her open heart and courage allow her to learn from her adventures.
I made this book for my daughter. Her indomidable spirit and grace inspires me every day.
Illustrations for "A Mouse Called Birdie" are created on canvas panel with acrylic paint and collage.
