This week TheFeatherArtist.com is so excited to present our featured artist, Carol Jones! Carol is a fellow feather painter from Ontario, Canada and truly has some amazing work! She has been painting on feathers for 6 years and focuses primarily on painting wildlife in acrylics on wild Turkey tail feathers.Her attention to detail use of vibrant colors really work together to bring her painted scenes to life.
Here is an excerpt from Carols biography describing how she got started with feather painting:
I emigrated to Canada in 1968 and my art was put aside for quite a few years, but not forgotten. I finally found my way back to painting again after taking a few folk art classes. That started the ball rolling and I wanted to do more. I then discovered using feathers as my canvas. After a period of trial and error I found a way to produce a painting without making a total mess of it! This I have found to be a very rewarding art form and though I still paint in the traditional way, I’m always glad to get back to my feathers.
Well Carol, I am a huge fan (and I am sure I am not the only one!)! 🙂
I hope you all are feeling as inspired as I am after seeing her beautiful work!
