Michelle made me an amazing feather mohawk. I sport it at all the festivals now and absolutely love it. It's stood up really well to the elements and me running around dancing with it. Can't wait to wear it on the playa this year. She listened to my custom requests and implemented them perfectly. Couldn't believe how fast it arrived. Thanks Michelle!

About

Art, Feathers, Love & Aloha - art from the heART

Aloha & thank you for stopping by! My name is Michelle Curiel, but you can call me Birdie! I currently live on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu, making beautiful colorful art in a variety of different mediums, namely feathers! If you know anything about me, you know that I live and breath art in everything that I do everywhere I go.

So here's a quick synopsis of my story: Once upon a time I was born and raised in the outskirts of Los Angeles. My artistic passion began at a very young age. Like other children, I was given crayons and a coloring book. But for me, the process of transforming white space with strokes of beautiful color left an indelible impression. Art quickly became my lifetime passion.

I began making feather headdresses for myself to wear to festivals in 2011. When people began asking me where they could get one, I decided to sell a few on Etsy. Back then, I had a 9-5 office job and felt like a bird in a cage! When orders started pouring in, I realized I had a chance to follow my dream of becoming a full-time artist. In 2012 I quit my job, packed a few bags and moved to Hawaii to seek a new slower paced life filled with waterfalls, rainbows and sunshine. Yes Please!

Constantly inspired by my surroundings, I express my innermost feelings through art. I live by the belief that beauty resides within us regardless of circumstance. This beauty is love, creativity and inspiration. You can find it if you look for it with your heART.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
100% Handmade & Custom heARTwork
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Whether it be a glorious headpiece that you wear or something that you can proudly display on your wall, you can be assured that what you get is something that has been made with love by my own hand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I stand by my work
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Everything that I create has value and meaning to me. These are my babies! I want whatever you bring home to last you throughout the years, including wearable accessories and headdresses. If your pieces incur damage that need a little love, please do not ever hesitate to contact me, I am always happy to bring your pieces back to life!
