The animals Karley uses are ethically sourced and have died of natural causes. None are harmed for the sake of creating art.

Transforming found birds from stagnant figures to sculptural objects, the reconfigured animals are fitted with extravagant hairdos. Ponytails, mohawks, dreadlocks, and braids are styled onto the colorful fowl, some with shining gold-painted beaks, granting each a personality, identity, and singular charm.  Habitats fashioned from both human and synthetic hair weave new interpretations of traditional nestings, modeling a novel type of avian architecture.
