Ellen Perry

I’m an artist because I love nature and making things. I’m also curious about how people interact with with each other and how to make that interaction fun, informative, and interesting. Besides nature and animals, my interests are history, politics, and funny signs.

My latest venture is “chirp-chirp“, an etsy store selling unique, handmade birdhouses and wood art that celebrates our extraordinary Morongo Basin, California desert environment.
