The Artist Bestiary is a project by M. Bolalek (“yourdeer”), a craftsperson, fine artist, and therian.

Bolalek completed a BFA in 3D Fine Arts at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2012. Working in an office by day, she devotes her spare time to working in metal and wool, slowly pursuing self-employment as a craftsperson and artist, posting in therian forums, reading, and spending time with her partner and roommates.
As a therian with a formal education in the fine arts, she hopes, in the Artist Bestiary, to create a visual resource of works pertaining to the merge of humanity and animality in the art world that may inspire and inform within the therian community.
