Featured Artist Fiona Smith is an Australian artist whose love for birds inspires her to create breathtaking paintings.
Fiona's work showcases her unique ability to bring birds to life by depicting them in elaborately-patterned interior settings that make them feel like they're part of the family.
But, her paintings aren't just about the birds; they are also a celebration of the relationships between humans and other species.
In her creative process, Fiona draws inspiration from the birds living in her own backyard, collecting objects and creatures that catch her eye (much like a satin bowerbird collects trinkets).
Her goal is to create works of beauty that pay homage to the feathered creatures that share our world, inspiring viewers to connect with and appreciate the natural world in their own way.
