Sharona Franklin (paid.technologies on Instagram) is an artist, who uses gelatin to create bizarre botanical sculptures. Also she describes her gallery feed as a Botanical Cake Museum.

She grew up in British Columbia. “I would just wander in the woods all the time and pick up plants like wild asparagus and burdock,” she says. “We’d hunt rabbits, catch crawfish, collect freshwater clams, go fishing…”

 In her teens, Franklin, who lives with over 20 rare complex systemic diseases, moved alone to Vancouver for medical care and has since been developing an artistic practice.
 
“When I started making art I wanted to show the more human aspects of living, and less this facade of design or aesthetics,” Franklin says of her work. “I really wanted to start talking about disability, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals — a lot of my gelatin work is a shrine to cellular use of animals.”
