Ornithologists and art aficionados alike find delight in Leila Jeffreys' winged works.

Conservationist, world traveller and fine art photographer, Leila Jeffreys, grew up in Perth, Australia. She experienced all the boundless travel and exposure to exotic wildlife required for an artist with her particular level of visual acuity. Among the many celebrities, who have taken her under their wing, Jonathan Adler, smartly featured the work of this emerging artist in 20 North American stores in 2010. As both a curator and interior designer, I adore the clean graphic quality of her work, and appreciate the memorable, emotional charge her subjects emit to their viewers.

Under Britain's child migrant scheme - operating from the 1920s through to the late 1960s - over 130,000 children were forcibly sent to ‘a better life' in former colonies, mainly Australia and Canada. Many were children of single mothers who had been forced to give them up for adoption, or had left them temporarily in British orphanages until they were fit to reclaim them.
