Motterfied Skulls - Unique Art using nature's designs!

Uniquely created by hand, using inspiration from coyotes, bear, muskrat, martins, deer, buffalo, bobcat, mink, fox, otter, lynx, badger, porcupine, rabbit and many others!

My name is Tracy Motter. I am a self taught artist whose art medium is skulls. Yep, you read that correctly…I decorate skulls. It is kind of a weird art that I fell into after I painted my first Buffalo skull. I get most of my skulls from Custer, SD or from people who pick them up for me at auctions or hunters. I have done small skulls (mink, martin, jack rabbit, etc.) and large skulls (Texas longhorn, buffalo, wildebeest, etc.). I like to take the ugly, bare skull and turn it into something pretty and unexpected by painting or blinging it out. My skulls can be described as interesting, eclectic, surprising and unique. All make fascinating conversation pieces for a wall or shelf. #Motterfiedskulls

A local artisan in the Midwest brings an unusual artform to life!

Uniquely designed and crafted, using inspiration from coyotes, bear, muskrat, silver martins, deer, buffalo, bobcat, mink, fox, otter, lynx, badger, porcupine, rabbit and many others.


The artist uses paint, leather, crystals, rope, twine, buffalo hair, tiles, mirrors and many other materials for her assemblages to develop a unique personality for each skull. Hours of work go into each skull as she applies crystals and beads, and each skull shape provides a new design challenge!

Most of the skulls are created to hang on a wall, or are set on a mirrored base for display. 

Who wants a plain old mounted deer head on their wall, when you could  have some personality to go with your interior decor!
