The stunning flamingo on our cover is the work of ‘bird whisperer’ Jackie Kozlowski, who works as a senior bird show trainer in Salt Lake City. Using her intimate knowledge of the birds she works with to feed her embroidery, Jackie shares their beauty and individual personalities with aplomb and we can’t get enough of her feathered friends. Flamingo print everything please…
