A self-taught artist from Alaska makes very soft, cuddly, fully poseable sculptures that are actually the same weight as real baby animals. That’s why when picked up, they feel like the real deal. Without any training in art, Lee Cross has been creating real and fantasy-inspired creatures since she was 13, and it all came very naturally to her. All she had to do was let her imagination flow.

We at Enlighten were astounded by her creations, and we wanted to share her lifelike animals with you too. In the bonus section, you can check out Lee’s favorite work so far.
