Mik “ShiningCat” Hovey


Crowsnest Creations had started under many different names in 2007 when I began creating creatures for no only myself, but for others who carried the same passion. I have been creating custom creatures (in art, costumes, and other mediums) on commission since 2008.

My work travels between realistic to cartoon and sometimes the two realms muddle in the middle, creating a unique creation on it’s own! Over the years, I have collected exprience mainly through trial and error and would classify myself as a self-taught artist. However, I have also picked up some tips and tricks when I obtained my diploma in Theatrical Production. Years of hard work and letting my imagination run wild has allowed me to create expressive and unique creatures and characters for the world to enjoy.
