I was commissioned to make a piece for a graduation gift. The client wanted a compilation of all the daughter’s bird friends, which included all her beanie baby stuffed animals from when she was growing up plus her real bird, Chico. It was too complicated to make as a complete fabric piece, so I used a combination of acrylic paint and fabric. Chico and the border are made from fabric. I added the words that he said, “Pretty bird" and "I love you”.
Technique: acrylic paint and fabric collage.
