2020 Featured Artist Richard Lorenz
German born – Louisiana artist and creator of his popular series – ‘BE THE BIRD’
“In the realm of all things symbolic…birds and feathers have held a certain fascination for me. My earliest drawings as a toddler were of birds and flying. Indeed, I drew every kind of bird imaginable. Self taught, working mostly in oils, I consumed the works of Audubon and other notable ornithologists both past and present. With many awards and accolades along the way, 1998 was memorable with my winning entry in the prestigious Louisiana Duck–Stamp competition.”
