Fantastical creatures appear to Susan Aaron-Taylor in her dreams. In the waking hours, the Michigan artist brings them to life, stitching together a hide of handmade felt and an array of natural materials.

Unified by Jungian philosophy,  Aaron-Taylor’s curious creations metamorphose animal forms with archetypal meaning.

The mixed-media sculptures simultaneously evoke universal and deeply personal themes, which Aaron-Taylor states, “chronicles the retrieval of these broken pieces of the Soul.”
