She brushed water onto the model’s head and began molding it [...] In only a few moments, a triceratops skull became recognizable.

It makes the passive art of looking at dinosaur bones into a whole new experience. [...] It's sort of a mini puzzle.

By Paleo designer: J.V. Becker

Paleoartist, Janelle V. Becker, has been creating leather sculpture for over a decade and has had her work shown around the country where it's been judged and awarded by some of the most reknowned leather artists in the world.  Her fossil art has been published multiple times within the leather working community and has also been featured on the front page of the Sarasota Herald Tribune as well as on international blogs and televised news.

As an Illustration graduate who also studied metal sculpture while attending Ringling School of Art & Design in 2005, she's learned to utilize line along with form in her 2-D to 3-D designs.

She's taught leather sculpting in several venues demonstrating her dinosaur model-kit brand, "Skelosaurz," which was successfully funded by Kickstarter and was chosen as a "project we love" in 2016.   

Today she strives to continue combining her love of art and science as a leather artist; recreating depictions of prehistory and skeletal models of long-extinct creatures by refining them in a clean, minimalist style which suits our modern day design. 


"There's a passion in combining one of mankind's oldest artforms with some of our earth's oldest flora and fauna."
