I understand so much better from your sculpture why owls are silent when they fly.  It's easier to see the dome shape the wings make in your sculptures than in photographs!  Wow :D

Wow! Thank you :) I'm so pleased you are looking at the sculpture fully! I do take a long time researching the bird and drawing it out feather by feather to get it as accurate as I can, means a lot that you noticed. Thank you so much! :D

I cannot even fathom how you did such a graceful sculpture such as this with wood and paper.  Are you a god?  My goodness...

Thank you so much! Really kind of you to say :-) Weirdly enough I saw you and your work on the BBC the other day and was really impressed by what you do, congrats on the coverage too, well deserved. Just had a look through your gallery and your facebook page, you are seriously talented yourself! :-D

Such an astounding sculpture! It looks so real with the delicate details you tediously rendered and the elegance and patience of getting the birds anatomy and natural movement as well. Simply beautiful, if I had the money I would buy one of your sculptures in a heartbeat and when I do have money down the road I will be sure to add one of your masterpieces to my wall. I would love to see(and I bet other would too) a video or tutorial of how you create your projects, wood is wonderful but difficult to handle for the inexperienced considering the tools and different woods available and your method for the feathers is ingenious. Thank you for sharing this with everyone!
