Portfolio | The Amazing Creatures of Faunwood
Deep in the Woods
Miranda Zimmerman, who works under the title Faunwood, is an independent artist currently based in the United States. With a B.A. in Evolutionary Biology, a graduate certificate in Scientific Illustration and experience working on paleontological reconstruction at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, it is clear that she is interested in the transformations and anomalies of nature.
Her passion manifests itself in the creation of her creatures, playful and surreal beasts that crawl and swim in sometimes surreal environments. Each one of them is as innocent as it is strange, with a third eye, multiple limbs, alien horns, and the ability to split into astral forms. With bold contrasts, Faunwood’s fascinating menagerie blurs reality with science fiction, inviting the viewer to appreciate the intelligence and mystery of the natural world. It’s all reminiscent of the incredible worlds of Miyazaki and his incredible creatures. A fascinating universe to discover!
