Michael DiGiorgio: Illustrating the World of Birds

MADISON — Growing up, Michael (Mike) DiGiorgio spent his weekends lost in the woods near his hometown of Schenectady, New York, with just a sketchbook and pencil for company.

“As a boy, I was always fascinated by birds, probably because they fly. My family would go on picnics and at the end of the day they’d have to send out a search party for me because I’d be somewhere in the woods looking at birds,” he says. “I discovered I had a talent for drawing, and artists always draw what they love, so naturally I started to draw birds.”

Over many decades, Mike, who now calls Madison home, honed his artistic skills on the shoreline. An exhibition of his favorite illustrations and artwork, From Field to Frame: The Avian Art of Michael DiGiorgio, is now on display at the Connecticut River Museum in Essex. He is excited to speak with fellow bird and art lovers at his talk, “Journey of a Bird Artist,” on Friday, April 13.
