Call it what you like, shape shifters, she wolves, hybrids?? either way, these are so delicate in a such a fun girly way. i love the tree hooves. reminds me of that expression, beware of a wolf in sheep's clothing.... Amy Ross is an artist originally from New jersey (big up!) who now works and resides in Boston, Ma. She describes herself as an artist but more often a "mad scientist".
