Dodos

The dodo at the Horniman Museum inspired the “Rowland's Dodo” and “true colours” prints. This dodo was made by the famous London taxidermy company Rowland Ward and bought for the museum in 1938. Hence the reference to Rowland in the title. I was drawn to the beautiful colours of the beak and feet of this dodo. The exact colour of dodo is not known, so it varies greatly depending on who has created it. Hence the reference to “True Colours” and not always knowing an animals/birds true colours or knowing peoples “true colours”.

    Hello, I’m interested in one of your dodo prints. Will you be at the other art fair this (next) year?

    Hi Tammy,
    I noticed your art on Instagram and must congratulate you on your incredible talent. I’d be very interested in knowing whether you have any Dodo originals or limited edition prints for sale. I’ve a few early Dodo drawings/illustrations but what you’ve produced is up there as one of the best reconstructions I’ve seen.
    Congrats.

    Dear Tammy,

    Indeed, you are an amazing talent, and while I follow only your Dodos, the
    rest of the portfolio is superb. The Rowland Dodo will, and should become a classic.
    Congratulations
