The Art of the Feather

I began painting on feathers nearly 30 years ago. I was a leather carving artist at the time and on a whim, decided to try painting on a feather. It was a trial and error kind of thing in the beginning but it didn't take long for me to really hone in on the Art of Feather Painting. I used acrylic paints, tiny brushes and a "feather" touch to achieve my goal which was to paint a beautiful picture on a feather while keeping the feather still looking as soft an natural as possible. This is not an easy task, I can tell you but with tons of patience and a bit of creativity, I did it!
Through the years, I learned to use multiple feathers to make my "canvas" larger. I also learned many preserving and repairing techniques and also how to paint with oils on my feathers.
I'm always learning and coming up with new ideas for my feather art. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy bringing it to you!
