Bad Bird Irish Artist - inspired by wildlife, their myths & stories

When she was 5 years old, her mother, a wedding dressmaker, gave Claire an old, broken tiara to play with.  After leaving it outside, she watched as a magpie swooped down and stole it - that began a life long love affair with these mischievous ‘bad birds’


Bad Bird is Claire McDowell, a wildlife artist, from the North Coast of Ireland. Inspired on a daily basis by the stunning animal and bird life found on our coastline, rivers and woods, and their myths and stories, Claire believes that getting close to nature is one of the best things we can do for our wellbeing.


Bad Bird illustrations take up to 40 hours of finely detailed work, using acrylics, oils, pencil, metal leaf and inks, and are based on beloved Irish wildlife. 


“I know the joy of getting lost in creating art and I hope that my pieces bring you a little joy too! “
