Talk about an unconventional canvas! Indiana-based artist Jamie Homeister paints the portraits of birds using their very feathers! As a tribute to her Canadian heritage and to Native American culture, Homeister meticulously paints, parrots, eagles, owls, and sometimes other animals like foxes and bears, on the medium that she says is no easier than ‘painting on blades of grass’.
‘Featherwork is an incredibly humbling media. The feathers splice, buckle, splinter and shred under the weight of paint’, she says. ‘Layering them in my multi-feather formations is even more difficult to execute, as you have layers of light, airy, thinly threaded buoyancy’. You can see more of her feather paintings over on Instagram and Facebook.
