Artist: CarLy Haney

Artistic Discipline: New Media, Visual
Location: Spokane, WA

My name is CarLy and I create baroque/gothic wall mounts using real taxidermy tarantulas. Each piece is hand-spread and completely unique, displayed without glass and allowing spectators to come as close as their courage may allow. In addition to spiders, I often take commission orders to mount other specimens such as bats, bees, butterflies, beetles and murder hornets. I take much inspiration from the elegant old buildings of Spokane, as well as the regal decor of chateaus like damask, lace, velvet and gold.
