Melissa Ball is a Pennsylvania artist who is especially noted for her unique and highly detailed artwork on turkey tail feathers.
Melissa has been using turkey feathers as her canvas for almost 20 years. Each feather is entirely hand painted and made to order. Please browse through the samples, choose from the featured designs, or come up with your own idea… Custom orders are welcome!
In addition to painting on feathers, Melissa is also a print artist. Her focus on the wild turkey has led her to a long standing relationship with the National Wild Turkey Federation. Melissa won the NWTF’s Grand National Art Contest in 2001, and has since had a painting featured in their national core package eight times, including currently in 2015, with “Legends of the Call“. During that time, Melissa was named the NWTF’s Featured Artist of the Year in 2003, and Stamp Print Artist in 2005. Look for her most recent print, “Legends of the Call“, at your local NWTF Hunting Heritage Banquet. Find a banquet near you at www.nwtf.org.
