“VEGAN TAXIDERMY” No animals were harmed in the making of these masks. 

I started making masks out of palm fronds. They fell on the ground across the street where I walk my dog daily. I noticed the that the base of the branch that connects to the trunk already looked like a face. I took one home and quickly made a tribal looking mask.And it took off. I have not repeated a piece. The dry branches are everywhere. I also incorporate other found plant or organic items as well as random treasure from my tool chest.

It’s a green product, I use nature to make images in nature. I believe there is a reoccurring order and design in the cosmos as well as on earth. As above, so below.
