Thankful for birds – The birds of Foreverbird Studio

Birds mean a lot of things to a lot of people. It’s even somewhat of a cliche (check out this funny skit: Lisa and Bryce put birds on things, from Portlandia episode 2.) But the symbolic meanings behind the bird go WAY back to biblical times and beyond. The dream of flying captures my imagination.

“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth – in a word, to know himself – so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.” – Pope John Paul II

I named by business Foreverbird Studio this year. I’ve been asked a few times why I decided on that name. There are several reasons – but basically it’s just 3 words I like! Forever, Bird, Studio.

I rise on spirit wings. Like the sea gull, I soar over the waters of life. I glide to Otherworlds where the powers of the Old Ones are strong. I open my heart and mind to the gods. Their messages are clear to me. – Animal Totem

I have a parakeet in the studio. Ghost flew into my house earlier this year.

I also love wild bird – birds of pray! Specifically the red tailed hawk. A baby hawk flew into my back yard – around the time I started to do freelance work in digital art. I notice them flying around the valley all over the south coast and they remind me reflect and look at the big picture in life. I find their presence reassuring – not surprisingly they are also seen at guardians.
