'Silent Skies' is an international collaborative mural mosaic featuring all 678 endangered species of birds of the world. It is a collaboration between Artists for Conservation and the 27th International Ornithological Congress in Vancouver, Canada.
The event involves both painters and sculptors and the mural will form the artistic centrepiece at the congress. The original artwork will be available for sale by silent auction and a limited number of canvas giclee editions of each will also be available for sale. Proceeds will support bird conservation and environmental education.
Fiona has committed to producing two works for the event, depicting the 'New Zealand Brown Kiwi' and the 'Campbell Island Teal'.
