Bird In Hand Studio is artist Ren Burke....



With painting and drawing as my primary media, I also create fabricated metal sculptures as well as linoleum and woodblock prints. Regardless of the medium, the natural world has always found its way into my art and is a central theme. 


I have been exhibiting my work around Colorado and nationally since 1998. In addition to my gallery work, I have also received numerous public art commissions.  I am currently represented by Trimble Court Artisans in Fort Collins, CO.
