When we saw these at a glance we thought we were looking at some moleskin sketchbook illustrations. As soon as we took a closer look we realized that they were made from skin and hair!

Her startlingly lifelike and equally bizarre sculptures had us feeling just as uncomfortable a few months ago. We also loved her incredible "Sky Whale" hot air balloon!
