Neil Dignan is an artist and a naturalist. Dignan has created detailed bird and animal paintings at Visionaries and Voices since 2009. He also specializes in human figure drawings, creating custom portraits by commission. Neil’s signature birds have carried over into his newfound passion for ceramics, resulting in miniature chicken and rooster figurines. An avid bird watcher and traveler, Neil never leaves home without a sketchbook to record what he sees. He is a graduate of the Teaching Artist Program and gives workshops and classes in schools around Cincinnati. Neil has participated in several exhibitions and co-curated Bird State in April 2013.
