Chris Maynard carves feathers into intricate art.

He combines his artistic sense and scientific knowledge into a new art form. His message is one of beauty and appreciation of life.

He uses surgery tools to carve the feathers while striving to respect their form. He sets them apart from the background so their shapes are enhanced as they cast shadows. Unlike a painter’s palette, the choice of colors in feathers is quite limited. Nevertheless, Maynard keeps the natural colors and patterns of each feather.

Many of the birds whose shed feathers he recycles into his art are still alive. He gets his feathers from aviaries and all are legal to have.

Since feathers can represent flight, transformation, and a bridge between our present lives and our dreams, Mr. Maynard is grateful that his art has hit a soft-spot in the hearts of many people and cultures. His work is in museums and private collections in North America, Asia, Europe, and Australia and has been featured in print and online around the world. Mr. Maynard’s book, Feathers Form and Function highlights his art while informing us about what feathers are, how they grow, what they do for birds, and what they mean to us.
