About katarinanavane

On Etsy since 2007

A varied Cabinet of Curiosities by a single artist.

I sold my first artwork when I was 10 and my parents let me set up a stand doing custom drawings at our garage sale. I sold handmade jewelry at local shows starting just a couple years later, and started this etsy when I was in high school. My art has evolved over the years, as I try new things and learn new techniques, but certain themes have always shined through, such as my fascination with Victorian era and Cabinets of Curiosities. I see myself as a bit of a mad scientist, rearranging and combining disparate elements into a whole that is hopefully a little wonderful and a little creepy.

    I'm an artist living in Columbus Ohio. I am always making and trying new mediums, so there are a lot of types of work available in my shop, from jewelry to sculpture to zines and more, most inspired by the chaos of antique curio cabinets. Enjoy!

Frequently asked questions
Materials Sources

I try to acquire the animal parts I use (bones, etc.) as respectfully and ethically as possible. No animals were killed for the use of their bones/etc in my art. Some were found dead, some killed for food, some naturally deceased, killed as pests, etc. I'm operating under a "better to use it than throw it away" theory, which I hope you all understand.
Similarly, all the old books, clocks, etc. that I use are damaged to the point of non-functional. I don't destroy anything valuable or useful, and try to only make things that improve the starting materials.
Almost all the sea shells I use are ones I personally found on the beach, although some were traded for, or purchased second hand.
