About The Artist

     Having grown up in Southern California, family camping trips to the Sierra Nevadas transported a young me to magical places, so different from life at home. The mountains were a place of snake wrangling, arrowhead hunting, trout stalking, and black bear encounters. Even though I grew up, went to school, got a job, and started a family, that magic has never stopped calling me back.

     Over the years, I've witnessed the scars that people have left on many of the places I grew up exploring. I wanted to create something that spread appreciation for the wild creatures and places we all love. make people happy and provided a way to help care for our public lands. It all naturally came to life as I started to share my art and use the profits to help make lasting changes through wildlife conservation. It was then that I decided the mission was "Conservation by Design"

  So, Thunderbird Design Studio was born. An artist-run business with a  conservation focus at its foundation. We understand that more needs to be done and that's why we are continuing to go above and beyond by donating 5% of all sales to support conservation organizations across the country. We are also proud to announce that we are 2% For Conservation certified to show our commitment to conservation.

     So far it has been super rewarding to create art that people enjoy and make friends with so many in our fly fishing and hunting communities. We are super excited for all the things to come in the near future!

Thanks and tight lines!  – Robin McCormack
