Artist Statement

'Birds of a Feather' is intended as an ironic reflection on the complexities of human identity. We are all unique individuals, made up of elaborate and convoluted characteristics which conjoin to form our distinctive personalities. A cacophony of discordant elements united somehow to sing a remarkable song.
