Artist Interview

Julie Anne Collier

January 12, 2012

We're very excited to welcome back Julie Anne Collier and her birds of prey for their second Arts Night Out presentation at Ode. Julie and her partner, Jim Parks, started Wingmasters to rehabilitate injured birds of prey. They also travel throughout New England giving educational presentations using live birds. Everything about Julie Anne is an art-form: her drawings, her presentation, her elocution, her passion. And of course...her birds.

Julie and her Birds will be in the store on Friday, January 13th from 6-8pm. For the month of January, 5% of profits will go to Wingmasters.

What have you been up to since your last visit to Ode?
I’ve been working on a book. I used to work for Merriam Webster as a dictionary editor, so I have a strong background in lexicography. I’m working on a school dictionary with bird of prey terms and my drawings. I’m collaborating with my partner, Jim Parks, and I’m enjoying the work.

Do you have a story you'd like to shar
