FEATHERS OF AUSTRALIA

Andre and Cathy van Niekerk have been artistic collaborators since they were married 31 years ago. They built the successful business, Feathers of Knysna, in South Africa which specialized in bird art. Having an international reputation in their field helped them to immigrate to Australia on a distinguished talents visa.

Australia’s rich bird life inspired them to produce the unique range of mixed media sculptures which are now available in leading galleries throughout Australia.

Andre and Cathy recently relocated to Perth where their vibrant artistic business remains on the cutting edge of design and innovation. They keep the hands-on approach to their work which gives it that individually distinctive appeal which is their hallmark.

Birds are the Earth's global ambassadors. They recognise no man-made boundaries, only those of the natural world. We should learn from them, for planet Earth is our common living space and our future depends on it.
