Birds of Feather Flock together

People with the same interests will be found together, I hope that means you are part  of the flock that will be attending the May 6 & 7th Art Sale at Mount Royal University.

inspired by feathers

Feathers are a big part of the inspiration that helps me to create birds as an art form. These crow feathers were quite weathered when I found them, yet still durable and could be made into quills or in this case lino carvings.

I’ve made bookmarks from this lino carving, the feather image also appears in some of my fabric panels.

One meaning I discovered for the Crow feather is “A feather from a crow symbolizes balance, release from. past beliefs, skill and cunning.” There are many more meanings or symbolism to be found from different cultures.

What is your meaning of feather? Does it matter which bird it is from?j

About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
