Say hello to Yogi the Umbrella cockatoo who forms part of my Ornithurae exhibition. I have photographed every cockatoo from Australia, so Yogi was a new experience for me as Umbrella cockatoos live in the rainforests of Indonesia - to the north of Australia’s rainforests. I met Yogi through Angela, a wildlife carer who was taking incredible care of him. Yogi was playful and so hyperactive, he made me laugh. He can be seen hanging in my exhibition: South Kensington, London @purdyhicksgallery or visit my NYC gallery @olsengruin who also have an edition. Any questions please contact email@example.com
Thank you to all who came to my London opening @purdyhicksgallery last night. I had so many wonderful conversations and thanks for the great questions. A serious moment but there were lots of laughs.
The exhibition is installed and can be seen in South Kensington @purdyhicksgallery until the 26th August
“I’m really looking forward to attending the exhibition. I am nervous & excited & have had my red feet done. I didn’t plan to be a model. I just went along to help my friend find the casting location as I am *really* good at directions.” Exhibiting at @purdyhicksgallery London until 24th August. Photo taken @ontheperchbirdpark

My collaboration with the @bergdorfs windows in NYC comes to an end but I have these photos as keepsakes. I wanted to thank the incredible team. Thank you to David Hoey - who is the designer and has been the magic behind the windows for over 20 years - & thank you co-conspiritor / collaborator, the extraordinary Linda Fargo. I love this quote from David: "This job is part architect and part cake designer, we take our frivolity very seriously". Also a very special thank you to production manager Demetrios Argyropoulos who sent me photos from the moment they went up to the day they came down. Happy to say that some of the display has been moved inside the building & works can still be seen on the 4th, 6th & 7th floor.
My portrait of the Superb fruit dove and other artworks are currently hanging in the beautiful Rosewood Hotel, London. Thank you to my UK gallery Purdy Hicks for organising it @rosewoodlondon @purdyhicksgallery
