The Chicken Who Came to Dinner, Claudia O’Driscoll

I first saw Oregon artist Claudia O’Driscoll’s beautiful work through a mutual Facebook friend this month. As soon as I saw she was a chicken nut, a vegan, and had lots of paintings of chickens as well as real chickens, I just had to blog about her!

Rescued Chickens, Claudia O’Driscoll

Here are her words:

“We got started keeping chickens when discovered that there were many birds in need of rescue. We are both vegan, so we don’t eat their eggs, but simply offer the chickens a safe home. Right now we do not have roosters, which helps with the issue of chicks being born. The chickens came before the paintings. I started painting in 2011, and since we live with animals, they became my subjects. My mother always loved chickens, and sometimes I have to smile when I think about what she would think of all of these chicken paintings. I love the birds because they have such interesting personalities. I grew up in the Bay Area, so I am a transplanted city girl. My father was an artist who painted all of his life. Mom was a carver and my sister played the violin and was a photographer. I took up pottery for many years, but recently began painting and I have not looked back. My work is now shown in White Oak Gallery in Silverton.”
