I'm an illustrator and an author, a critter-lover and a coffee addict.
My illustrated memoir, Once Upon a Flock, is the true and riveting tale of a small backyard flock including Lucy, the special needs hen and Wicked Lil' White. Full of drama and suspense, the book is enjoyed by critter-lovers aged 9 to 99.
I tailor my talks to meet the interests of the particular audiences. Here are a few topics:
It's true! Chickens share a very close DNA with T-Rex.
This is my general and all-encompassing chicken-talk. Learn about backyard chickens - their history, breeds, eggs, language, personalities, and planning and maintaining a happy flock. I'll present lots of hands-on materials, I'll answer questions and, of course, I'll teach you how to draw a chicken!
In which I launch directly into gripping tales of my soulful flock. You'll be on the edge of your seat when you hear stories of Lucy the special-needs hen, her best friend Hatsy, Lil'White the sociopathic Buff Orpington..
....and, of course, I'll teach you how to draw a chicken!
This presentation is all about art.
I'll teach you some professional tricks and you'll be drawing along with me through the whole presentation!
l'll bring skulls, bones, feathers, my sketchbooks... lots of stuff to spark creative enthusiasm.
