About the illustrator:

Philadelphia-based artist Kate Garchinsky is an independent art director and award-winning writer/illustrator who has specialized in all segments of children’s media, family and youth marketing for the past 13 years. In 2009 her first children’s book manuscript, Time to Fly, received a letter of commendation in the Society of Children’s Book Writers & IllustratorsBarbara Karlin Grant Competition. More recently, Garchinsky conceptualized, co-produced and created all illustrations for the children’s album, “Sing Me to Sleep: Indie Lullabies“, released on American Laundromat Records in May 2010. Kate aspires to inspire and enrich young minds with her stories and art.

The family of Yellow-Crowned Night Herons that inspired Time to Fly nested in southern New Jersey, an area where they are listed as a threatened species. This heron breeds as far north as New England, but winters heavily in the coastal wetlands along the Gulf of Mexico. Oil in the marshes, mudflats and mangroves pose a serious threat to their livelihood, contaminating their much-needed food supply after a long, exhaustive fall migration. 

"Volunteers from Tri-State Bird Rescue in Newark, Delaware—located minutes from my home—were first responders on the scene in the Deepwater Horizon Wildlife Response. I can tell you from personal experience that Tri-State is a small organization that not only needs but deserves donations and support. No bird rescue effort is too big or too small. In July I took an injured Scarlet Tanager from my yard to their facility and in a week was invited to retrieve her and release her back where she belonged. In two weeks I shall attend an information session for aspiring bird rescue volunteers at the facility. Birds so bring joy and inspiration to my life, I am simply compelled to protect them."

May I request that the $50 donation for my painting go specifically to Tri-State Bird Rescue? 

I'm going to be attending an information session there this Thursday for their volunteer bird rehab program.  Thank you so much.
