American Kestrel

Measurements: 10.60" X 8.5" Quilled American Kestrel, also known as Falco Sparverius. Caroline has incorporated her scientific background into her artwork which is known as quilling or paper filigree. Narrow strips of paper are rolled into coils, shaped, and glued into place. Although many quillers purchase machine cut strips of paper, Caroline buys large sheets of art paper (primarily charcoal and drawing papers) and cuts them into strips herself.� This allows her to use the slight differences in width to produce subtle variations in color when combining multiple strips.�Each piece is a handcrafted original, mounted in a handmade, hardwood frame.
