Episode 8: Drawing and Painting Birds with Nora Sherwood

Oregon Coast Birdcast

07-05-2024 • 46 minutos

How can art alter how you look at the world? Today Paul talks to Nora Sherwood, science illustrator and nature artist about her work drawing and painting birds and other wildlife. Nora shares how she came to this work later in life, leaving a career in tech to learn how to become an artist. She discusses the process of working with scientists to convey key messages about their study subjects, the strengths and weaknesses of hand drawn versus digital art, and how taking the time to observe the minute details of a subject leads to novel curiosity and appreciation for that subject. Ultimately, the conversation aims to answer the question, what can art do for the conservation movement? Can appreciating the aesthetic of a bird lead to action taken to protect it?

In the introduction, Paul provides an overview of what birds you can expect to see this month on the Oregon Coast. At the end of the episode, ASLC Digital Media Coordinator Nissa Parker jumps in to share news about ASLC events and projects.
