“Perches in the soul”

The poem uses the image of a bird to represent hope, so for this quote I imagined a bird inside a person and created this image of the ribs acting as a cage for a bird. I created a simple drawing then a layered version with more intense colouring

  1. I like how you’ve taken the Emily Dickinson poem and managed to incorporated parts of it in several drawings. Have you…or do you plan to…exhibit these as a series linked around the poem? The use of the ribs/cage (love the pun!) and the bird/soul is brilliant.
