I grew up in the incredible Florida keys. As I was growing up, I spent a great deal of time boating, snorkeling and diving our beautiful reefs.
Drawing and painting caught my interest when I was 5. Years later, I discovered the unique media of feathers. My collages and paintings are inspired by and echo the amazing colors and patterns you can find on the reef: literally the Sea & Sky reflecting each other’s beauty.
I do not dye the feathers & only rarely cut them to trim or shape. I hand paint the wildlife images directly on the feather. They are humanely sourced from aviaries here in the US.
I use naturally shed feathers, found & repurposed objects, and old boating charts to add texture and depth to each of my completed pieces.
