Ali Bernie Buga-y has been a teacher in arts and music in different international schools in Thailand for nine years until he decided to enjoy the full time lifestyle of being a visual artist. Together with his family, he travels to different national parks in Thailand to experience true encounters in nature and wildlife. His love for the birds and animals is the driving force that motivates him to photograph and paint them as seen in the wild. The Joys of Birding can only be shared through visual presentations of these lovely feathered creatures carefully studied and observed in their natural habitat. As a graduate of Theology, he perfectly understands that somehow man should find ways to emerge himself to an edenic experience here on earth; and through this physical experience man may again find spirituality as he beholds nature, complicated as it is and yet portrays simple beauty refreshing the mind and soul.
