Obsessed with the details of the natural world, Imogen started to create from a young age. Although, it wasn’t until her forties that her endeavour became focused. Now, one of the UK’s leading feather artists and a pioneer in the world of wildlife art, she exhibits and sells internationally from her seaside home of Whitley Bay. Still absorbed by her surroundings, her work develops with the changing tides of her much loved coast.
With only a handful of UK based feather artists, she has been kept busy producing beautiful animal and bird portraits on a variety of feathers, again honing her skills further by producing her jewellery collection including painted feather earrings, lockets and brooches.
The craft is technical and based on skill, brushwork and a knowledge of feathers.
The feathers are collected by herself, donated by friends and fans of her work or bought from reputable sources. Each feather painting takes up to a week to complete.
