Manic Tuesday: Freya from Zomby Zoo

Freya of Zomby Zoo


Forgive the delay, but it's a Manic Tuesday this week since I was under the weather on Monday. That's what I get for not scheduling ahead! Hopefully the wonderfully crazy art today will win you over despite my lateness.



Tell us about yourself and your shop
Hi,  I have been making things all my life and have always loved animals and since I was old enough, scary films and books. My fave monsters have always been zombies over vampires and werewolves, as they seem so inevitable and completely unstoppable! I have a lot of fun creating these creepy little creatures. In Zomby Zoo you will find a creepy but cute collection of zombie,ghost, robots and other monster animals, ready to win your heart and possibly your brains. 

All animals are handmade from high quality Fimo and Sculpey polymer clays. I love how polymer clay can give you so many different effects, you can blend your own colours and create any pattern or shape. Then you cook it (it feels like science) and then your creature is alive! ahem, thats how I feel when I create a zombie anyway, sometimes its a little scary. 

 I opened Zombyzoo in January 2013, and zombies have invaded everything, especially my dreams.

What made you decide to open an online shop?
I already had a jewelry shop on etsy, for leather earrings,necklaces and bracelets, and I recently got some polymer clay for a present, fell in love and used it to create creepy but cute animals.



What is your current favorite item in your shop?
I would have a hard time choosing but I love the expression on the ghost rhino's face and this new deer necklace.
