First my real name is Miranda Jordan. Isabel Doom is my artist name. I thrift vintage statues and repaint them! My mediums are corpse paint inspired by Norwegian Black Metal and the macabre mainly. I work down at Abernathy’s downtown which is an amazing small business that specializes in Handmade, Vintage and Oddities. And, I’m a mom!

I’ve always loved metal. The furthest back I can remember is being in the car with my dad listening to Metallica’s Master of Puppets on cassette before I even knew what it was. I remember being transfixed by it and remember it sounding so good in my ears. It’s history from there. It’s what I grew up on.

My favorite band is a tough one because I have a ton of favorite bands! So I’m just going to say Death. They inspired me a lot growing up as well as introduced me into heavier metal.

My favorite concert, again, it’s hard to choose but if I had to it’d be a tossup between being front and center for Rammstein and seeing Iron Maiden for the first time.
