Art by Judi Lapsley Miller

Fine art inspired by the stories of birds and the natural world. Starting with photographs, I let my imagination take me on flights of fancy. What is real and what is imagined is blurred. What is physical and what is virtual is disrupted. Bursting with colour and life.

The Scenic Route
500mm x 500mm

Take the scenic route and go on the ride of your life with these crazy birds in their hot-air balloons.

Dawdling behind are the flamingos who take the time to admire the late afternoon sun in this deep valley.
