Artist Statement

I only once saw what is now referred to as a Lilacine Amazon in the 1980's when many Psittacines were being confiscated at the border. At the time, there was a quarantine station in Nogales, Arizona where birds were held and then auctioned off. This created a glut of birds in the Tucson area, but gave me opportunity to see many different species. Policy has since changed. It opened my eyes to the huge problem of birds being taken from the wild, and the many questions of their fate afterwards.
