About the Artist

Hi! I’m Mindy Byrd, a commercial photographer, artist and mom currently living in Dallas Texas with my partner, two kids and two cats. I graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington with a BFA in Art, going on to assist photographers in Dallas until eventually signing with The Photo Division as a fashion, beauty and product photographer. I’ve been lucky and so grateful to work with amazing clients like Adidas, Amore Pacific, Benefit Cosmetics, L’Oreal, Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter, Nike, Mary Kay and so many more. I’ve been incorporating collage into my personal and commercial photo work since college, something that started out as purely aesthetic. Slowly the process began to feel more and more therapeutic for me, realizing the act of using my hands to create was calming my anxious mind. I’ve struggled with Anxiety and Panic Disorder my entire life. My anxiety has manifested in some scary ways, but also positive and creative ways. Over the years, I’ve been able to harness and channel my nervous energy into my own creativity. Using my hands and creating collages has been a form of personal therapy for me, something I want to share with everyone, hoping that others might be inspired to do the same. Anxiety and depression can be debilitating, often making it difficult to get through basic, everyday tasks. I hope to encourage others to push some of that energy into creating something meaningful for themselves and others. We're all in this together! Byrdhouse is inspired by my love of mixed media, the joy of sharing that love with the world and creating space for everyone to feel empowered in their own creative journey.


I'll get back to you soon!
