Shing Yin Khor


You know, I can’t not love someone who describes herself according to her Hogwarts house denomination in the header to her website.  It’s simply impossible.  Shing Yin Khor is, as the banner suggests, a sculptor and a painter.  Malaysian-born and Los Angeles-based, Shing is a former theatrical painter, designer and prop maker.  She creates delightfully adorable creatures, drawing inspiration from cabinets of curiosity, old museums, and historical hoaxes.  Yes, I took a lot of this bio directly from her site.  But really, that’s such a clever way to put the information.  I am a big fan of scientific-based-fantasy art, and I just want to snuggle her odd little creatures.  Enjoy!
