Portland’s Sofie Skein describes her Poupettes as, “…spirited renditions of animals and mythical creatures in pure polymer.” She’s also a painter and grew up involved in the family vet clinic.

Her animals have realistic heads perched on simply stylized bodies that will make you laugh. See them all on Flickr including this picture that shows how she works from detailed sketches.

She sells her animal portraits (like this custom Egyptian Mau cat) on Etsy in her Menagerie of Inscrutable Magic.

Sofie is a new artist on PCDaily thanks to a link sent by Eva Menager.

    Oh Sophie, what great fun and talent. the Ferret Possie is brilliant, you really capture
    quite a bit of charactor in such a simple way. My Fav was the Boxer. I raise and show boxers, (13) and you really nailed an expression I’ve seen a million times !!!!!

      I checked out her other animals on Flickr. The way Sophie captures individual personalities is wonderful. I especially adore her wedding couples.
