Rose Tanner is an award-winning artist who loves the outdoors and studying birds. She is dedicated to using traditional oil painting techniques, travels widely for her subjects and is active in supporting endangered birds and their habitat.
“Birds sing, dance, fight, court, breed and fly. They claim territory, pair for life, play the field, fool around, hold funerals, have socials, eat fermented berries and perform mating rituals that leave us baffled. The subject matter is endless; watching birds in the wild has taught me absolute respect for the diversity on this planet. I love to share my passion for birds. My work is about these moments in nature that show the story, emotion and character of a bird,” Tanner says.
