Every Saturday I focus on a different artist that I admire. From potters to painters, chefs to collectors, seamstress to songwriters, lifestyle to lovers... anyone who set the paintbrush, pastry brush, hands and heart on fire to create.
Those who inspire art to flow where it may.
Years ago when I first started blog, I stumbled upon Ann Wood's blog, she posted about her art and her feather creations. I was captivated by her sweet little birds... Love Birds.
I peeked into her blog regularly ... knowing it guaranteed a smile. I was never disappointed. Her feather creations, no two alike, were charming.
Whole flocks would appear and disappear,
The little friends sold quickly.
It was understandable.
Wedding parties marched in, as the love birds flew away.
Ann's art tickled me. Her photos always delightful, imaginative, & child like.
Ann created each bird by hand. And made the world’s tiniest boutonniere.
Ann Wood lives in Brooklyn, where she creates art for pleasure and livelihood. Ann creates with, "...mostly found, and salvaged materials, many of them vintage or antique garments."
Ann Wood goes on to say, "There is a kind of affection and tenderness in the re-use and re-purposing of things that were once personal and perhaps treasured possessions. Much of my inspiration comes from these materials as well as from many of the ideas I have been infatuated with my whole life : smallness, intricacies, miniaturization, collections, repetition; lost or abandoned things discovered and rescued; the idea of haunted and enchanted places, things and creatures; the setting of a tiny stage."
I think Ann started blogging in 2004... Her art includes teacups, horses, spiders, boats, owls, castles, paper mache silverware... oh so many little sweet things.
I loved her collections, her hunts, her flea market finds, her scraps, her sharing HOW TO recreate her art! Sharing her ideas, her tricks, her talent... step by step.
Ann Wood never disappoints each season the flock arrives well dress, acorn hats this winter are the style.
