The question I get asked most is, why owls? Even though it seems like a random bird to be interested, owls have always been a fascination of mine, but I didn't really know or acknowledge that it was a "thing". Throughout the years I have collected small owl artifacts like an owl wallet, a small wooden owl carving and an owl necklace. I also have always loved the Greek Myths revolving around owls with Athena. At Pave' Fine Jewelry, I was always the one people went to for questions pertaining to Greek mythology and the ancient coins that were sold there.
After starting DreamID Graphics and spending A LOT of time on the social medias, I realized that other people had this same connection to owls and I started following numerous owl conservation organizations, owl photographers, artists and communities. Soon my Facebook feed was filled with owls!! It was then I realized this was a "thing" not only for myself, but for a great many people.
Then one day, Bryan and I were on a plane and I thought, "Wouldn't it be great to have a magazine dedicated to owls so I could read it on planes?" I expressed this new thought to Bryan and he said, well, why don't you just make one since you have all the software?. I thought Nah, that's crazy. Then I though, yeah, I totally should do that.
That is when The Owl Eye Magazine was born.
