The whimsical bird paintings of Amy Judd, an artist based in London, England and represented by Hicks Gallery Wimbledon, may bring to mind Cinderella and a number of other fairy tales. After all, animals play a huge role in Disney movies. Yet there is nothing cartoonish about these works of art. Instead, the whimsical bird paintings are romantic and sophisticated.

Helping women lace up their feminine dresses while keeping them company, the owls, finches and more are inspired by mythological narratives. Full of delicate patterns and sensitive brushworks, the whimsical bird paintings are nevertheless far from frail. Instead, they allude to strength, flight and bravery. A great reminder to get people, especially women, through their everyday routine.
