Dempsey Essick is a self taught, self expressed realist watercolor artist. He is known as the Hummingbird Bird Artist; not only for the hummingbirds he paints but for the hidden hummingbirds he hides in his paintings.

Whether it's in a restaurant on a napkin, at church on the bulletin, or in a personal note to a friend, Dempsey Essick is always doodling. He is best known for his Carolina cartoons drawn to incite sports fans. Many people come in the shop to get copies of Dempsey’s Doodles but others print them or email them here at our site.

"House Cleaning is for the Birds"

Does your bluebird house need to be cleaned?
