I like tromping through wetlands, forests and the high desert just to get a glimpse of a bird.

It doesn’t necessary have to be a rare bird, but if it is, it made my day.  I am an artist.  Sometimes, I draw birds, but not as much as I would like. Sometimes, I teach kids about nature and how important conservation is, but always adding a few extra words about the birds.  Sometimes, I have travel to far away places facilitating an art strategy to save the planet with other Artists or NGOs.  But I seem to be especially fond of the people I meet that work protecting birds and gravitate in their direction. No getting around it, birds are totally inspirational.  And did I mention… I really DO like birds.

Save World Draw gathers articles from thought-provoking writers writiing about art.  I try to share stories and experiences written about how a few insightful artists can plays an important roll in their communities promoting change in positive ways. Artists can draw attention to many things and help teach communities to appreciate the beauty around them in noteworthy ways.

Save World Draw has two blogs, The Potentials of Art, that goes into the importance of art in our communities, current art critisim and some of the greater potentials we find by looking at golbal culture.  It is a current dialogue about global inquiry that engage us to look deeper into ourselves.  The other blog, Birdie Girl, is mostly about Bird-Art encounters. Articles written by many fine writers that talk up the bird world that include some artistic encounters.

Some of my earliest memories are linked with birds. Now I listen for their song or watch them ride the trade winds. Birds ground us in the moment.  Birds teach us that the little things we do in our lives matter and sometimes miraculously can become something very big in a profound way. So if you give a hoot about birds, please follow my Birdie Girl blog to hear the cherps, tweets and our ocassional shriek. Who knows maybe you’ll find yourself inspired, pick-up a pen or brush to capture the moment.  But to be fair, I should warn you by doing this you might find yourself absorbed, drifting into the Potentials of Art. Thank you.
