The bird pants must have been styled for the theater, they are amazingly fashionable, very well made and functional too. Or I assume, I can't find a bird to wear them. I have bought two pairs so far and they are fantastic! Everyone I share them with, loves them. They are whimsical and charming.

I make birdpants!

I create work that is evocative of scientific curiosities and mounted butterflies, with a humor that sneaks up and inspires a much closer look. My current work focuses on birdpants—tiny, ornithologically correct pants that could be for backyard visitors who are either fashion-forward or simply chilly. I employ traditional craftwork such as quilting, embroidery and beading to produce highly detailed—and decidedly non-traditional—confections that encourage you to consider the possibilities of enticing a chickadee to don a pair of slacks. I spend my spare time filling bird feeders in the hope that, one day, I can talk a songbird into modeling my creations.

    I live on top of a hill in Broomfield, CO. I make “ornithologically correct” bird pants, as well as other wacky stuff. I don't take myself too seriously, and try to have as much fun as possible with the things I make.
