Happy Friday! โ˜€๏ธ

Sit back and enjoy a chat with artist Cheryl Medow. Watch now: https://youtu.be/JtT1wV47c-0

Medow creates images that entice the viewer to enter the natural world and envision her wild birds. #cherylmedow

Through her "Envisioning Habitat" series, Cheryl presents the beauty and majesty of birds to othersโ€” while referencing both 19th-century paintings and the work of John James Audubon, naturalist and painter.

With classical training in the arts and 21st-century tools like Photoshop, Medow found her calling: traveling around the world searching for birds to photograph and creating new images in her studio.

Her desire is to preserve and protect our world. Through her art, we can all be stewards of our extraordinary planet's sublime beauty.
