The story of the Giant Coffee Drinking Chicken began as a large, well made canvas with a pink, textural acrylic landscape that a neighbor was throwing out on a ‘big junk collection day.’ My husband alerted me to it, and I brought the canvas home and gessoed over the landscape. For months, we both goofed around painting on it. Then one day I had the idea to make a chicken…

Most of my work is done subconsciously and intuitively, without a plan. I believe there are meanings in it for each of us to find. Sometimes, it’s just about enjoying the absurdity! Full Bio

    Great!!!! Our hens are daft enough without giving them coffee :)

  • LOL, yeah, I read caffeine is bad for birds. My budgie is very interested in my coffee and that’s the last thing she needs is a stimulant!
