Roosters & Beaked Friends
About the Arists:

Ellen Hayden: has a BFA in painting from the State University of NY at New Paltz. She has been seriously involved in painting and art for the last 35 years. She is looking to achieve a universal theme by use of the cats as a symbol, by color, and by shape in 20th century terms. Her beloved cats, Itty Bitty, Max the Cat and Shadow Boo, which are her muses in her studio.

Fynn: Fynn was born in 1947 in Brooklyn, NY. After living in large cities and rural communes, she currently lives the life of a hermit in a small cabin in Alabama and is considered an eccentric by her neighbors. She has had a varied and adventurous life outside mainstream conventions, true to her visions and creativity. This cat inspired series was inspired by the wild, rebellious, and mischievous stray cats she has rescued and adopted.  In her work, she strives for an exuberance of line and an originality of color in an attempt to bring to life the intensity and singularity of Cat.

About the Series, "ROOSTERS & bEAKED fRIENDS"
In our current show, “Roosters & Beaked Friends”, the theme centers on one of my favorite motifs: birds. The sculptures are all made by reclaimed and recycled pieces from the past that I found in my journey to recreate antique objects. The paintings in this series are about using color and shapes to bring my friends, the birds, roosters or owls to a higher level of the experience of art.
