Starla Michelle Halfmann is an artist from Autsin, Texas. She gained her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Design Communications from Texas Tech University, and loves to paint bird in mixed media.
Why birds? She shares: "I decided to paint birds because I think they are interesting to paint and I also like the symbolism behind each species. Most cultures think birds represent the soul – I want to play with this idea. Also, I fluctuate between feeling like a bird in a cage to a soaring eagle and every bird in between. This probably has something to do with being an artist and everything fun that goes along with that."
