Canadian Sculptor Ellen Jewett has created a wonderful series of handmade surreal animal sculptures, using her background in anthropology, biology, and medical illustration …

She says: “I find my sculptures are evolving to be of greater emotional presence by using less physical substance.”

“This, unavoidably, excludes most of what is commonly commercially available, and has sent me on a journey of unique material combination and invention.”
