These striking illustrations of birds were drawn by Suzy Sharpe, an artist based in Cornwall, UK, whose work includes painting, drawing, printmaking and installation.
In her work Suzy attempts to create a dialogue around the human and animal relationship against the backdrop of a society in which the distance between them seems ever increasing.
Suzy says, “My Father was a butcher and I currently live on a smallholding in rural Cornwall where a variety of non human animals, including livestock, pets and wildlife punctuate my days and inspire my work. Issues relating to food, farming, wildlife, pet keeping and the effects that humans have on the environment are always at the for front of my mind and research. Using my work as a vehicle I explore, question and celebrate the relationships between humans, animals and the environment that we share.”
