I have always been madly in love with creating art and painting feathers has become my newest obsession. The challenge of building up layers of paint on such a fragile surface is both exciting and arduous. With such a small, delicate canvas, I have to make sure my brush strokes are gentle and precise. I use acrylic paints and tiny paint brushes, and all of the feathers I use were naturally molted – many of which were donated to me by parrot owners, or were shed from my own five pet birds.
I have been making a name for myself as an artist over the past few years, specializing in colored pencil and charcoal pet portraiture, and am very pleased to now be accepting commissions for custom painted feathers as well. I love what I do and am so excited to see what the future has in store for me on this artistic journey.
