Patricia Marin Miranda was introduced to feather art in her native country Costa Rica. Her interest in Native American Indian and Southwestern themes stems from her own indigenous roots.

Feather art, known as “arte plumaria”, is one of the highest, most elegant and sumptuous arts of pre-Hispanic and colonial periods in what is now Mexico. This highly developed art was produced by special artisans who had permission to use the feathers of the most sacred birds of the Aztecs.

An art form mostly lost due to the dying out of the masters during the 17th Century, Patricia is inspired by these indigenous artists and has developed her own unique technique that is a rediscovery of the use of feathers as a ”canvas” for beautiful and memorable scenes. Unlike the earliest methods of tying the feathers together in a mosaic to create an overall pattern with smaller fragments glued on top to create a representational feather “painting”, Patricia carefully paints directly on the feathers with acrylics and oils. – Taken from marinfeatherart.com.
