Its All Feather Art!


More than ten years ago, my partner and I started making art with feathers. We called it "feather painting", but the technique was tedious and the artworks were difficult to conserve. We created a pseudonym for the artist because there were two of us.

When I got to school in '08 and started studying graphic design, I saw that digital feather rishi was a great way to save the feathers and use them to create art.

The feathers are always molted and gathered from companion birds. That's why the process is green.

As a new artist who is still in school, I have the best of both worlds. There are scholarships and grants to nurture me. People help me with everything and I am grateful for the opportunity to become an artist.
