WILD AT HEART: the toucan, the blue jay, and the parrot May 06 2021, 0 Comments
History shows us that animals are essential to the quality of our life on the planet. We have domesticated them for pets and employed them in our daily labour, some remain wild, and some are endangered by our activities. They deserve our honour and respect and love.
We have employed them to assist in daily and seasonal labour. Ancient Egyptian illustrations show oxen pulling plows. Other animals we live with. They've become our family members, our companions, and our objects of affection. This relationship helps us reduce anxiety and they are easy to love.
Other animals, the wild ones, capture our hearts and imagination from seeing them from afar. While we've enjoyed seeing a variety of animals in the zoo, there's nothing quite as exhilarating as seeing a toucan in the wild or the rush of seeing a tiger in its natural habitat.
For as long as humans have been able to distinguish the variety of birds, there have been birdwatchers. Even president Jimmy Carter has been birding in over 25 countries. Did you know that among birders, there are celebrity list of birders?
To celebrate the beauty and majesty of animals in the wild, I've launched a new collection called Wild At Heart. Over the next few weeks I'll be talking about my design thinking behind the project, as well as sharing images in the collection, which extends to apparel and home accessories. Hope you find something you like. You can view the entire collection here.
Until next time,
