Being a bird lover, I of course love feathers. They are the most wonderful example of nature's engineering superiority, so small and delicate yet able to soar so high. I collect feathers and small botanical pieces when out walking, using them to work from life on small intimate studies. Working in such small detail helps me with my larger pieces which always have an element of detail somewhere in them. By practising regularly from life these studies have sharpened my artist's eye to be able to incorporate details into larger pieces.
They have proved popular as finished pieces so I make them available to buy as a collection in their own right.
