In May 2015 My partner found a baby bird fallen from his nest in a nearby rookery, he became the birds mum and lovingly reared him. His name was Ron (as we assumed he was a Rook) and Ron grew in to a grumpy, stroppy, adorable and intelligent....Crow!
I can't begin to explain in just a few words how amazing it feels to spend a year and a half with such an incredible creature (the dog may disagree as he ran rings around her). By August 2016 he had grown a magnificent new set of feathers, learned to talk (I kid you not!) and began to fly, then without so much as a thanks for all the cream cheese and focaccia he left, he had alsways been free to leave only being caged at night for protection. We cried for weeks, and still watch the skies willing every passing crow to shout HOORAH!
Knowing we probably won't see him again we are left with the fondest memories of our time together. Ron has inspired this series of Collagraph prints. Each plate has an edition of just 25 prints
