a fine set of whiskers


eve o'neill

november 20 2016

Eve’s amazingly life- like creations are inspired by Victoriana, especially the Victorian taxidermy style- something I’ve always found gruesome since an early encounter with a mouse orchestra in a Nottinghamshire stately home!

Fortunately she is also inspired by nature and rather less cruel techniques which mean her exquisitely detailed birds are fashioned from wool gathered from local farms in West Wales.

Her acute observation of the creatures that she creates means that they are astonishingly life-like and often incorporate things that she has found on walks such as fallen nests and broken eggs. A very special gift especially for someone with a passion for the birds in their garden.
