Artist Website

Melissa Ball creates fine art paintings of plants, wildlife and domestic animals using wild turkey feathers as her canvas. She hand paints each image directly on the feather in precise detail.

In addition to feather art, Melissa sells her artwork as original canvas paintings and prints.

Due to her interest in the wild turkey, she has forged an ongoing relationship with the National Wild Turkey Federation. She won the NWTF Grand National Art Contest in 2001 and was Artist of the Year in 2003. Her paintings have often been featured in their core packages. She was selected Stamp Print Artist in 2005 and again in 2017.

Her feather paintings are sold double matted and framed in 5×7, 8×12 and 9×20.
