James Audubon

As an artist that is fascinated by nature and birds in particular James Audubon has always been a huge inspiration. His work documenting the birds of America is a constant source of inspiration for me.

You can read about his amazing life and work here.

His book Birds of America is a major source of reference for me. I love looking at his illustrations. The way he captures the birds is amazing.

I’ve included some examples below and you call see them all here.
