Create to keep life's chaos at bay. I deeply enjoy deconstructing and being deconstructed.

Hello beautiful being! My name is Myranda. I am a self-taught, curious, 26 year old female specimen. I work with other fine specimen creatures of all shapes and sizes and though they have passed on, I enjoy finding new & creative ways of bringing them back to life.

Greatly influenced by my father who used to collect dog skulls, snake rattles, mouse bones and other neat things, I guess you can say...his hobby stuck. I never realized how much that impacted me until one day in an antique shop, many bones ago, I happened upon two loveliest of lovely deer skulls. I asked, how can I make this even more intriguing?

This here shop is my answer.

I possess a fascination for all things unique, innovative, out-of-the-ordinary, tedious, precise, messy, delicate, honest and contradictory. I carefully select and meticulously hand-cut every image you see in my work.

I never kill creatures myself, nor do I have them killed for me. All specimens in my shop are lucky finds, gifts or purchased through licensed taxidermists. If the sight of dead animals makes you uncomfortable, please move along.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to surround ourselves with those who are not afraid to take risks in order to find true happiness and love - cherish those people. To those brave individuals, I Love You. YOU INSPIRE ME EVERYDAY.
