Sketching friend Judith Main sent me a link to Abigail Brown's delightful bird "sculptures" yesterday. I thought you might enjoy going to check them out. Brown is a textile artist who makes her bird figures using old and new fabric scraps. They are amazing. She has an ability to capture the lightness and liveliness of birds and yet not lose track of the whimsical.
In addition to her birds she makes odd stuffed toys and fabric jewelry, which you can find if you click on her "shop" and scroll through the offerings.
