  1. Bird Type

    This project originally started off as a personal one, but developed into something I thought I must share!

     

    In anticipation of the arrival of our first child, I wanted to create some nursery artwork; something that would be simple, graphic & educational.  My love of birds was at the top of my thought process, but felt the meshing of art & design essential.
