My name is Mina and I am of the clan MacDougall faring from the Scottish isles! My husband and I are a creative and artistic collaboration. I love the beauty of nature and enjoy capturing that in many mediums. I have enjoyed artistic pursuits from a young age and birds and ornithology has always been a passion. I never go into a drawing or a painting knowing what will come out the other end, I can sit for hours waiting for inspiration to strike, and when it does I can be holed up for days on end! Being an artist is such a gift, and this site is my first serious foray into making my art my primary source of income. As it stands I manage someone else's store day to day to make ends meet. So if you like my work, enjoy taking it in with your eyes, and if you have some cash to spare, I'd appreciate you helping me turn the dream into a reality.
