About Me


I'm an artist/biologist from Denton :) I'm heavily into Vulture Culture and produce wet/diaphonized specimens, cleaned bones, and tanned hides, among other things. I'm a HUGE bird nerd, and have three cockatiels, Gibbs(white faced), Henry VIII(normal/split to pied), and Cricket Bird(lutino). They're my beautiful sons💚 My favorite species I've worked with are Toco Toucans, one of my favorite individual birds would have to be Baby Pele, a White Pelican I helped raise at a wild bird rehab(though Ozzy the Black Vulture, Greenie the Little Green Heron, Annabelle the Crow. and Sadie the Barn Owl are just about tied with her). I've worked with so many birds and it's honestly hard to not work with them any more, as I currently do lab rodent care. The one bird I really want to see before I die is the Bearded Vulture! I currently have a black gsd/husky mix named Zeeke/Beep who I've had since the day he was born! Other animals include; four Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tarantulas, two Copperheads, two Cottonmouths, one Leopard Gecko, one California Kingsnake, and one Siren~ I've been getting more and more into digital artwork, but my heart will always belong to watercolor 💚
