The barn owl (Tyto alba) is one of the most widely distributed of all birds, taking top honors in that distinction among owls. Now acknowledged for its role as a predator of rodents, up until the late 20th century this large-winged, long-legged owl was maligned as a portent of evil or death, hunted even by the farmers who reaped the benefits of the barn owl’s prowess. Silent in flight, with a telltale screech serving for a “hoot,” the barn owl has a heart-shaped face that may have helped endear it to present-day humans.
Artist Jeannine Chappell combines her talents for creating images on paper with the options provided by editing her artwork via computer. Such a merger engenders qualities of collage into her unique works of art, and serves to portray her barn owl subject with boldness as well as delicacy.
