Artist Statement: This bird just popped out of my head and onto the fabric and before I knew it she had become a whole personality. The phrase, "be yourself", came to me while working on it and I ended up stitching the words right on the front. I really love this piece and see it as my true creative nature coming forth. This is my own original, one of a kind design.
