A Labor of Love

Several years ago my husband's grandmother gifted me with a beautiful set of Ram horns that belonged to his uncle who owned the ram as a pet about 70 years ago.

All skulls are ethically sourced. No animals have been killed by me or by others for the purpose of my art. The majority of the skulls I use have been found by various property owners, farmers, and ranchers on or in close proximity to their land and that have died from natural deaths, such as food chain kills, lightening strikes, car deaths, etc. Often found in various stages of decomposition, the skulls would normally be thrown away or left to disintegrate back into the earth. I devote many hours of my time to the restoration of the skulls, breathing new life into these forgotten relics, transforming them from total decay into objects of uncommon beauty.
