“Come in and make some guts” they said; “kidney, heart, lungs, lower intestine…” Then came the giant cuttlefish, disembodied eyeballs, man-eating monsters, and of course one very handsome medieval Rhinoceros called Albrecht. Since starting in 2007 I’ve had some great opportunities to combine my loves of animals, anatomy, puppets, sculpting and painting.

ROAMING: Human Body Parts, Rhinocerous
