Hello! Thanks for stopping by!

I am an aspiring artist who lives in Oregon. I dabble in all kinds of art including digital art and photography, but my true love is watercolor.

I also love birds. So much. I can't put into words how obsessed I am with birds. BIRDS.

I own a budgie (parakeet) named Inko, who is a fantastic, messy, frustrating, absolutely lovable little fluffball.

I enjoy drawing both real and fantastic creatures, and my inspiration is the incredible beauty of the natural world. I seek to praise God with my art, to create as an act of gratitude for the amazing world He designed for us.

I do not have an online store set up yet, but I am beginning to offer prints/originals for sale and taking commissions (small ones at the moment because of my busy summer schedule). If you are interested, please contact me at:

kwiseman17@georgefox.edu


P.S. If you are not familiar with the cassowary bird, google it. You will never be the same. :)

Hey!  Last week, I was blessed with the opportunity to do something I’ve dreamed about since second grade: BIRD BANDING!

Most of my “birdy” followers probably already know what bird banding is, but here’s a little synopsis for those who may not.  Banding is the process of catching wild birds in mist nets (about 8 feet tall and 30 feet wide on average) and affixing small metal bands to their legs.  Each band has a unique number sequence that acts as a bird’s ID number.  When a bird is recaptured, its number is recorded and added to a database.  This data can be used to study bird population decreases/increases, migration patterns, breeding habits, and many other things.  Bird banding provides data which is the very basis of bird conservation!

I met the professor of Ornithology at Eastern Oregon University at a birding festival, and she invited me to come out to her MAPS station.  In preparation, I read two 80-page banding manuals and studied the data-input sheets as best I could.

It was definitely stressful; banding is half art, half science, and is filled with complexities that require hands-on training and a lot of patience. It’s unnerving to be the only novice in a team of experts!  We had a really busy day (we caught 44 birds in total), so I spent a lot of time running around between different nets and the station delivering supplies and “bird bags”.  I did a bit of writing down bird measurements and other data. I also was allowed the privilege of releasing a few birds!

I had so much fun.  Even though I had to wake up at 3:00 AM. :D  I’m really hoping that I can continue to pursue this interest. 

I documented my day through my Instagram story; it’s now featured in my highlights.  Click here to watch!:  

Special thanks to everyone who welcomed me at the Ladd Marsh MAPS station!

I am very happy this compliment made your day. Your Art is very well made that is the least i could do^^

Hahahaha thank you, glad you liked the image XD i love it too. Scorpius Dagger did a great job with those GIFs. I wanted to make my profile silly as i like to put a smile on people's faces when they visit my profile. Spreading some positivity is always a nice thing in my opinion do why not doing it in a silly way XD
