A Bit About Me

"Feathers don't have to be just a trend.  They're of nature,  and therefore are timeless. " 

I have always been an artist, even since I was a child.  I would go around & draw everything in our house, from my unicorns to tchotckes.  I was always the one to move the furniture around in our house growing up.  I would put my little legs on the wall and push the sofa with all of my strength.  My need for creativity carried on thru school and college.  I took classes in ceramics, metals, drawing and painting.  During college I did some modeling and discovered the fashion world.  In love with that world, I moved to LA for make-up school and have been a working make-up artist & hair stylist in the industry since.  I have moved around the country doing make-up & hair in LA, Miami and NY.

 

I've always felt a connection to feathers and have been collecting them all of my life, each one a found treasure.  Feathers are tough enough to weather a storm, yet delicate and soft - ethereal. 

 

So after painting feathers on canvas for years, I dreamt up a more modern approach of visualizing them.  My fashion background, obsession for interior design & creativity all come into play when I'm creating these.

 

Feathers don't have to be just a trend.  They're of nature, therefore are timeless.  My wall hangings are an interesting alternative to framed artwork, and add a textural element to a room.  They can stand alone or be put into a grouping on the wall.  They are modern, bohemian & luxe.

There is no better honor than having your artwork recognized and loved.  To affect someone's daily life in their home.  To have someone smile, when they pass by a piece of artwork they have curated for their home.  To bring it into their sanctuary... for this I thank God for the gifts He's given me.
