Barn Owl

Pamela Kirton is an award-winning illustrator who grew up in Bloomington.  She has worked as an illustrator in London, England and locally.

Her Birds, a mission and a passion

Her private work, the Birds, began one winter as an observation at her backyard bird feeder. While most Minnesota birds are humble — even drab in color– they became more and more precious to Pamela.

Soon they were beautiful as if they had been hatched from Faberge eggs. It became her mission to honor them in that vision.
