SPARE PARTS

Bits and pieces and one-off projects that didn't fit anywhere else. 

The original La Grotesquerie shop icon from 2009.

I made these "Devil Baby" gargoyles out of thrifted angel figurines for quite some time. I think I still have a few around here.

One of my first taxidermy pieces. I wound up making a few rat fairies.

Glamour Guts, a mummified squirrel that I embellished with bits of costume jewelry—which has become a favorite technique.

The first deer I ever mounted. Now all I see are the mistakes but it was a great learning project.

I made some mistakes on the ears, which I covered up with air plants.

Back of the neck is grommeted and held together with ribbon.

The Red Dragon, still waiting for a castle to hang in.

"Barnum," the two-headed duckling.

Totes Mah Goat, the first "real" taxidermy project I tackled during my training.

Buttercup is my spirit animal.

Krampus was the perfect subject for this creepy doll.

I turned dessicated fetal piglets into bejeweled fairies.

Working with porcelain dolls, I often wind up with leftover bits. So I added them to the flowerbeds.

How does your garden grow?

Pretty maids all in a row.

So fun.

An event I participated in, trying to extend my radius to Ohio. It wasn't very successful.

This was a lot of fun at our local art museum. I didn't have any physical pieces on display but was represented in a slideshow of local artists.

Flyer for ShineStock, put on by the Treehouse Shine Bar, which is a kickass establishment that is very supportive of local artists.
