The Owl Parade


Amalia is an illustrator and crafts enthusiast who as a child "found true love in fairytales and grew up in a whimsical world, the two things that inspire [her] art the most."

She recently added these whimsical owls in her online store 'The Wish Forest' that are made out of limewood, hand carved using pyrography to add lovely details on the feathers. Each owl was lovingly hand painted by the artist and finished with a tint of glossy varnish for a beautiful shiny sheen before packaged in a lovely gift box. Amalia is running a summer sale in her store where you can get these owls on 25% off. Grab'm before they are gone!
