There are many extraordinary artists who focus on honouring and protecting Mother Earth, none more so than the incomparable botanical artist, Tracey Deep. Saint Cloche is proud to reveal Tracey’s latest body of work, ‘Birdsong’.

“Bird Song” is inspired by songbirds losing their song.

The critically endangered Regent Honeyeater is losing its “song culture” due to the bird’s rapidly declining population. A 2018 study ranked it seventh in a list of Australian birds most likely to go extinct.

Just like humans learning to speak, many birds learn to sing by associating with older birds of the same species. A March 2021 research study warned that the rapid decline in the rare songbird means its young are struggling to learn mating calls as adults disappear, which could further strain conservation efforts to avoid extinction. The complexity of their songs have declined, and 12 per cent of males were found to be singing other species’ songs, including the Currawong and Eastern Rosella. According to one of the authors of the study, this loss of song can reduce the birds’ ability to find a mate, and, if they do, the female is less likely to lay an egg.

Loss of song culture is a major warning sign the Regent Honeyeater is on the brink of extinction.

Global biodiversity loss, destruction of habitat & extensive land clearing has caused population decline of many native bird species.

Bird Song

“Bird song” is my homage to our unique native birds & feathered species around the world, raising awareness of the importance of our voices to support birds losing their song, creating devastating effects for future native bird species, impacting on our future environment & humanity as a whole.


My ”Bird song” exhibition has evolved over years of collecting materials, repurposed found objects, organic material, feathers, wire, rope, fibre, creating patterns, shapes & textures with “bird song” at its core.
