Flora Fauna celebrates the whimsical side of nature.  Creator Mary Katz constructs soft-sculptured birds and animals that are playful, colorful and unique.  Mary is inspired by everything in nature, from birds and animals to flowers, trees, rocks, lakes and rivers.  She tries to bring a naturalist’s sensibility to all her creatures.

Even though they are fun and have individual personalities, they are never imaginary and are always based on real birds and animals that exist in nature. Flora Fauna incorporate re-purposed thrift shop fabric in each and every creation, they are finished with wool felt, wire, glass beads, sequins, hand embroidery and polymer clay.  Mary’s newest birds and fish are mounted on natural wood or stone.
