I’ve always been captivated by birds without really knowing too much about them. I find them beautiful visually and symbolically; the colours they hide, the texture of their feathers and the shapes they form mid flight as they spread their wings. They are an inspiration from aeronautical engineering to the mythical creature Pegasus.

In my imaginary world, birds [and many other wild animals] would interact with people and form bonds with us. Some may disagree, but then again, it is my little imaginary world. This thought brought me to the Hybirds project. Hybirds was born from an increased curiosity in crows and a slight change of perception –  personally transforming the negative common connotation of black crows into that of a good omen.

In my imaginary world, Hybirds is a bond between crow and human – physical and spiritual, protective and companionable.
