Emily Valentine is a professional artist from Australia.  Her works are whimsical and charming marriage of animals. Underneath however she has a message.  According to the statement on her website,

“In my work I wish to discuss how attitudes to wearing birds parts have changed. Is this just because of fashion, or has society become more caring of animals? I wish to stimulate the viewer with the uncomfortable nature of the feather, to question our callousness treatment of animals and birds, and ask how we sub-consciously classify animals – pet or pest, valued or worthless, beautiful or plain and why.”Emily Valentine
