Chris Maynard’s lifelong work with feathers has resulted in a new art form, collected worldwide. He describes feathers as a miracle of function, beauty, and evolution—a structural pinnacle of life’s achievement. Maynard shows through his art, photographs, writing, and presentations that appreciation of feathers’ beauty and function can reconnect us to our wonder of life and inspire us to live lightly on the landscapes that we share with birds. A book is forthcoming.

As a biologist, Maynard negotiated for the Washington State Department of Ecology to improve flows for salmon below dams where the region gets most of its electric power.

See his art work on his website and some of his thinking on his blog.
