Words from the artist

A Spirit Feather symbolizes a New Beginning, a Spiritual Evolution, Divinity, Inspiration, and Good Fortune.

Whether you choose the Spirit Feather that catches your attention and awakens you, or your loved one chooses one for you, it is a gift that will surely enlighten you. Your Spirit Feather will always remind YOU that YOU are loved.

From the moment I conceived the idea to create Spirit Feathers, I felt an overwhelming source of enthusiasm and positive energy.

I knew I had discovered a form of creating attractive combinations of vibrant colours in a form that also brought a sensation of Spiritual energy to me.

I LOVE designing the Feathers and embellishing them with natural beads and leather. I LOVE the response and reactions I have been feeling from all of my encounters who have chosen their Spirit Feathers.

My Spirit Feathers are created in limited editions.

I create 10 to 20 of one colour combination. The following edition I choose a different combination of colours for that particular pattern. They are 6"-9" long. Sold separately or in clusters hung from driftwood from my local beaches or wrought iron rings. I create very large (18"-22") detailed individual feathers, as well as very small feathers.

I have an eternity of ideas bubbling inside, waiting only for moments in time to come alive.
