Hi, I’m Kim and my love for cryptids and the paranormal started as a child, being raised in a family with many UFO and paranormal experiences in Oregon. Because of these strange experiences I found myself drawn to creating artwork pertaining to the subject matter. It wasn’t until 2015, that I finally decided to make my art a career instead of a hobby. Now, you will find me In my studio in North Carolina creating ceramic mugs and sculptures of Bigfoot, aliens and other cryptids. And when I am not covered in clay, I like to create original illustrations for apparel. You can find my work on Facebook and Instagram (Elusive Hare) and my web store www.elusivehare.com or catch me vending at bigfoot, paranormal or UFO events.
