- In her own words: “Intricate. Delicate. Quiet. These words describe the beauty of a bird’s nest. I selected this subject matter to represent spring, the season of new beginnings. The Earth is awakened and livened by the new life and change that occurs. For this drawing, I wanted to challenge myself by rendering an exceptionally detailed piece to really capture the warmth of the season.”
