Everyone say hi to Valerie! Valerie is a blind artist, who can sculpt the likeness of a bird by holding and feeling it. She was kind enough to come by the sanctuary today and help us out with the dishes, and birdy cuddling. She takes commissions by request, as well. At home, she is mama to a cockatiel, and is very excitedly awaiting the arrival of her new companion and guide dog. Thanks Valerie for visiting us today and helping! #parrot #umbrella #umbrellacockatoo #cockatoo #art #blindartist #artcommissions *photos taken of Valerie are with her express permission.
