I have always had some form of art in my life. I enjoy trying new mediums and new canvas to paint on. I am a self taught artist who is seventy seven years old. I began painting on feathers twenty years ago. We owned an acreage and had twelve Peafowl and some Turkeys which naturally molted feathers for me. I taught myself to paint on the feathers and it has opened up a new venue for selling my art. The Peafowl or Turkey feathers are hand painted Native American motif, Wildlife or the feather could be special ordered to show a portrait of a favorite pet. I also use Artist Fungus and slices of Mexican Onyx to paint on as well as feathers. I paint on my canvas with either oil or acrylics.
