"Gouldian Finch Sketch" pencil crayon, ink on paper.
Hello, my name is Sarafina Collura. I’m a 16-year-old self-taught art student attending Etobicoke School of the Arts. My works are based on the bond I share between myself and a flock of 20+ exotic finches and waxbills. Through raising these unique specimens, I’ve not only been granted the opportunity to study their physical appearance, but I’ve also managed to integrate myself within the flock; being observed not as a threat, but as a member of their community, has allowed me to continue in studies that surpass physical attributes and observe behaviors, individual and self-dominance as well as the incredibly complex social anarchy that exists within these organisms.
