Miranda Zimmerman, working under the title Faunwood, is a freelance artist currently based in the Pacific Northwest. With a bachelorâ€™s degree in Evolutionary Biology, a graduate certificate in Science Illustration, and experience working on paleontological reconstruction in Chicagoâ€™s Field Museum of Natural History, it is clear she has a vested interest in the transformations and anomalies of nature. Her passion manifests in her creation of Faun-Creatures, playful and surreal beasts that crawl from her head and onto the page. Each one is as innocent-looking as it is strange, with third eyes, multiple limbs, alien-esque horns, and the ability to split into astral forms. With bold contrasts and flowing linework, Zimmermanâ€™s fascinating menagerie blurs reality with science fiction, inviting the viewer to appreciate the intelligence and mystery of the natural world. Visit her Instagram and website for more. She also has a shop with pins, stickers, and prints of her work thatâ€™s well worth checking out.
