Birds in Art
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Melissa Washburn | Share link: http://illo.cc/67418



Bird illustrations inspired by 19th century Arts & Crafts textile patterns, but depicting species native to my area of the Midewestern U.S.

These were created for submission to a bird-themed art exhibit in conjunction with the 2017 Indiana Dunes Birding Festival, an event that brings together bird enthusiasts, scientists, and yes, even illustrators for a week of lectures, birdwatching hikes, and networking.

Testimonial
I had the pleasure of commissioning Melissa to create a fundraising illustration for dragonfly conservation. Melissa not only delivered a captivating image, on deadline, she also went above and beyond by hand-coloring each and every one of her prints. Melissa is a talented professional who understands the big impact of small details and going the extra mile. I wholeheartedly endorse Melissa as an illustrator, a professional, and a genuinely nice person.
