Katelyn Burdette’s medium of choice is clay. She specializes in handbuilding animals, but is thrilled to bring her whimsical animals to a large 2D scale. Her subject for the ink rally is on the fearsome critters. These creatures are of lumberjack folklore. The creatures were seen by loggers in the woods and told about their encounters over campfires. Animals include the goofus bird that flies backwards and makes its nest upside-down; the gumberoo, which is a bear that is hairless and can only be killed by fire; of course the jackalope; and 20 more critters. Katelyn enjoys working with her hands as she makes pastries at Rocket Bakery. When not creating, she enjoys playing with her 2 dogs, camping, and gardening.
