Juanita Payne Dobson, a self-taught multi-medium artisan, sets a High standard of craftsmanship while using nontraditional materials. Each original feather art design represents the unique art style of painting on feathers linked to a story of it’s meaning through native American myths or totems. Award-winning “Winged Spirits” Feather Art is collected worldwide.
“As ‘Spirits’ of Children of the Earth reveal themselves, I carefully blend acrylic paint into the feathers creating the illusion I visualize for others to enjoy! Due to the unusual medium, the art of painting on feathers and framing is extremely difficult. The majority of feathers used are turkey and grouse, which are not altered in any way, making it a delicate and time consuming process and cannot be mass produced. The original design in the feather is incorporated when possible to evolve into the story subject often with hidden images. Each unique creation is numbered, dated, and signed. No two “Winged Spirits” are identical, making each illustration a unique and timeless work of art to be cherished.
“Winged Spirits” possess a special knowledge of mother Earth and serve as nature guides throughout life’s journey! . . . May the tracks we leave behind inspire our ancestors.” Artisan Juanita Payne Dobson . . . JPD
