Dana Gardner, a self-taught painter, has illustrated nearly 50 different books and field guides on the birds of Costa Rica, Singapore, Wallacea, and Belize. Gardner met San Francisco-based artist Kent Tool in 2001 and they quickly became “birding buddies.” Artistic collaboration quickly followed, with Gardner illustrating Tool’s ceramic platters, plates, and vases with images of roadrunners, cardinals, and woodpeckers.

Works by the artists may be purchased online or in person at the Museum Store. For more information, contact the AMOCA Museum Store by email ( or at (909) 865-3146.
