Welcome to Feather Finesse and my unusual and original paintings on feathers. My name is Rosemary Storm and I am the artist. Together with my husband, Jim, we form the partnership of Feather Finesse and work from our home in Dunfermline Scotland.
I first developed my original ideas and techniques in the mid 1970s and now produce a wide range of paintings on feathers including such subjects as birds, butterflies, family pets and other animals, fish, flowers, Scottish landmarks, aircraft and other forms of transport, plus customised designs for weddings, etc. Cards, bookmarks and other printed merchandise reproduced from the original paintings are also available.
Since 1984, I have exhibited regularly at crafts events throughout Scotland and occasionally in other parts of the UK and have also previously exhibited in Germany and Holland. I undertake many private commissions and have sold paintings to satisfied customers all over the world. Jim and I also do demonstrations and workshops, which are very popular with a variety of clubs and organisations throughout Central Scotland.
I use mainly acrylic paints for my work and collect the vast majority of feathers from around Linlithgow Loch during the birds moulting season, when the feathers are freshly dropped and clean. Swan, goose, duck and various other types of feathers are used and all are individually sprayed with an anti-mite spray to ensure that the feathers and paintings will last for many years once framed.
