Drawn From New England Tasha Tudor A Portrait In Words and Pictures – By Bethany Tudor

~ ‘Bethany describes in affectionate detail the world her mother created and made famous. The result is not merely the portrait of an artist, but also a celebration of her highly individual way of life.’ – Drawn From New England

Bethany has shared many fond memories she has of growing up as Tasha Tudor’s Daughter. She does indeed have much in common with her mother.

Bethany shares her mom’s love of birds. And like Tasha, Bethany is the owner of forty – something birds. She likes many of the same breeds as Tasha, such as the tiny Australian diamond dove, domesticated ring neck doves from African, African cape and Tambourine dove, Zebra finches, Fife and American singers Canaries and hand raised Cockatiels. When I ring Bethany up on the phone, it is so delightful hearing the bird song in the background.  Bethany breeds birds and has a great knowledge of them. I do enjoy learning about the different birds from her – both domestic and birds in the wild.

Just encase you were wondering – Bethany prefers to wear skirts. She finds them to be more comfortable than pants.

With colors that never fade,

And we find, at the end of a perfect day,

The soul of a friend we’ve made.”
