Framed Birds - Mixed Media Wall Art
When I starting creating felt birds they were three dimensional, stuffed pieces but I could never make the talons and the beak as precisely as I wanted, using the medium of felt. A lot of experimentation later, I came up with the idea of drawing the finer features of the bird and sewing the embroidered body directly onto the paper. The final pieces of mixed media wall art are a combination of drawing and embroidery.
I've started with garden birds and have added in some of my personal favourites such as the kingfisher and the beautiful and majestic red kite. If you have any suggestions for other birds that you would like to see created in felt, please don't hesitate to send me a picture via Instagram or Facebook or drop me an email.
