Flights of Fancy

In honor of all things vegan and cruelty-free, and the glorious fun that is Vegan MoFo (Vegan Month of Food), I'll be featuring some fun and fabulous vegan artists throughout October! 
Who: Ruth Norbury
What: Textile Art, Hand Embroidery, Handmade Cards and Amigurumi
Where: Swansea, Wales, UK
Web: http://www.ruthnorbury.com/
Why: Vivid threads perfectly placed conjure up all sorts of birds and beasts from curious sparrows to perky finches to serenely swimming seahorses. Ruth uses a variety of fibers, colors and techniques to create these gorgeous velvety wonders. And her crocheted critters are awfully cute too!

Who: Aimee Baldwin of Vegan Taxidermy
What: Crepe Paper Sculpture
Where: Berkeley, CA
Web: http://www.vegantaxidermy.com/
Why: It's paper, people! Paper! Aimee's work just tumbles me over with its meticulously remarkable craftsmanship. I love these feisty feathered friends!  :)

Happy Halloween and A Blessed Samhain!
