Following a life-threatening brain haemorrhage in 2005, Collins spent time learning to draw again as part of his recovery. Rediscovering his love of art and childhood fascination with ornithology, since October 2005 he has drawn a bird every day, titled and dated, mapping his recovery. This series of drawings illustrates the journey Collins has taken over the past few years. Their fragility and beauty diarise his recovery and instantly connect with all visitors, not just those who have experienced the effects of illness.
