Quilled Belted Kingfisher

Caroline Spellman lives surrounded by gardens, forests, wetlands, and agricultural fields in the Finger Lakes region. Her background in biology and stewardship of the natural landscape she lives in inspires her unique and original treatment of paper filigree. Also known as Quilling, in which narrow strips of paper are rolled into coils, shaped and glued into place, has been practiced since the Renaissance. Caroline�s attention to species specific detail pays homage to the wildlife illustrator James J. Audubon. These 3 dimensional portraits matted and presented in a handmade hardwood frame would be delightful in a grouping, featured in a library, bedroom or an area of your living room where one can get close and examine the meticulous detail. The hand cut overlay (over the quilling) is an original watercolor also!
