To me, Nature is God. Without it, we simply would not exist. Conserving the world’s natural spaces and the creatures that live there is paramount to the survival of humans as a species, and I have therefore dedicated my life to studying environmentalism in order to help people co-exist more successfully and sustainably with the natural world.
All natural materials I use in my creations are either sourced from roadkill, Fish and Game, secondhand sources such as fellow artists and estate sales, or are antique. In this way, I'm ensuring that no animals were needlessly killed for the sake of the artwork I produce. I fully believe that no part of any creature should go to waste if a purpose can be found for it, but I do NOT support trophy hunters or overseas fur farms by buying 'byproducts' like bones, skulls, or claws directly from them. The only exception I make for this rule is for parts from animals legally culled for population control programs approved by Fish and Wildlife.
As a photographer and wildlife enthusiast, I've been involved with many fantastic organizations such as Images4Life and Wild Tiger, as well as the Sierra Club and many smaller, local groups.
I've been published, interviewed, and even featured on Rainn Wilson (Dwight from “The Office”)'s personal networking website, SoulPancake.com.
I’ve also been blessed with the opportunity to visit many of the world’s most amazing wild places, like Komodo Island, Bali, Lombok, Malaysia, and the Cayman Islands, and have even documented entirely new species previously unknown to science.
Other interests include: Wilderness survival, primitive skills, backpacking, fishing, kayaking, boffing, airsoft, snowboarding, meandering around town, and caving.
“Don’t let them kill the wild animals inside of you…”
sounds like typical cat behaviour, my cat suckles on my toes every day when i wake up, i never get over how weird it feels
NO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. HE IS HOLDING ME HOSTAGE. HE IS ASKING FOR RANSOM. SEND TUNA OR I’M NEVER GOING TO BE ALLOWED OUT OF BED AGAIN.
Just slunk across the room, slowly crawled into bed with me, and then proceeded to jump onto my ribs so he could very aggressively start nursing on my blanket while perched on top of me, staring and kneading and sucking on said blanket like a damned creeper.
WHAT HAVE I RAISED?
If you have commissioned me for a headdress/sent items for me to work on and have done so through Tumblr instead of Etsy, chances are, these projects are complete! I may have already asked for your shipping addresses. But if I did so here on Tumblr, the messages were lost in the crappy messaging system here. So, if you are still waiting on something from me, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! Thank you!
In the future, if someone is interested in placing a commission, I’ll ask you do communicate through Etsy so that I can keep all business-related communications in one place. Thanks for the co-operation!

In a sentence — Her birthday breakfast, served on vitreous wares of no actual worth, was more about the love in each bite than the flavor of any of the components.
I realized halfway through watching Super High Me that I have already seen it. I just forgot that fact for some strange reason…
