This art is made of real feathers. Each piece is backed to make it sturdy but what you see is the actual feather, unchanged, uncolored. To retain the natural curves of the feathers, they are set apart from the white backgrounds using stainless pins. This creates shadows depending on the direction and quality of light that shines on it.
Feathers also represent flight, something we can do with our bodies only in our dreams. So they become important symbols of hope and transformation. More images of my work are best seen at the Gerald Peters Gallery in Santa Fe, NM. The prices of artworks start at $1200. I am grateful that my art has found a soft spot in people’s hearts around the world.
