ShirleyBirds are created by Shirley Shurtz who lives in UTAH. She is my Mom. They are a FOLK STYLE hand carved wooden birds, hand painted with acrylics, and perched on a natural piece of interesting wood. The final stage is an acrylic coating to bring out the colors and protect it.
Some of the ShirleyBirds in the gallery are available to purchase, see the description in the slideshow. If it is SOLD, she is always happy to create another one. The bird(s) will be similar and the wood different, as Nature creates unique “one of a kind” designs in her natural wood. Some of the wood is local, found in her explorations over the years. Some of the wood is coming from Laulima, a 30 acre sanctuary in Tennessee, from our brother, Randy. The energy of Laulima and Randy is very wonderful so this wood is an AWEsome perch for ShirleyBirds!
Creating ShirleyBirds is one of the ways she supports herself at 83 years young! She is also happy to take custom orders. It is good to find an image of the bird you have in mind so she can see what you want. She can also make the birds bigger or smaller depending on what you have in mind. Sometimes she make them life-size, sometimes they are smaller or larger. She wants you to be happy with your very own ShirleyBirds!
Shirley ask from $25-$150 for her birds, depending on how many birds, how big they are and the size of the overall piece. It is best to discuss that with her. I have included some approximate prices on some of the birds in the gallery that are still available. Her prices are subject to change.
Shipping is always extra and can range from approximately $15-$40, depending on the size of the piece, where it is going and how fast you want it sent.
Check back occasionally to see new ones.
