Common buckeye shadow

This was the first insect shadowbox I made; I wanted to mount the insects, but the only shadowboxes I could find were so big they looked dwarfed- and then I was like ‘oh, yeah, I do a thing that could solve that’. Anyway, this is a common buckeye, Junonia coenia, collected by an entomology student…

Still life with pears

Pears! So delicious and so pretty! Available now @ Southern Makers and Artists Collective, or PM me

Forest shadow

I’ve been pretty inspired by some of the cut paper artists on instagram, and this piece definitely owes a lot to them. So much fun adding in all the little animals. This piece is sold, but if you’re interested in something similar, I’m always happy to take commissions.

Mantis with leaves, shadowbox

My hands really hurt from cutting these intricate leaves (if it’s not clear, there are two layers of them, one green and one pink), but it’s the least this mantis deserves. (All my insects were collected by entomology students for a class and then given to me when the class was over). This piece is…

Octopus, float

This isn’t the first time I’ve tried to do this octopus, but it’s a lot more successful the first time. I think the difference is how I approached the shading. This piece is currently available at the Southern Art & Makers Collective, but if you’re interested in it and you’re not in Montgomery, contact me!

Butterfly, float

Having a great fall break, cutting until my fingers hurt! Tried out a few new techniques and am super pleased how it turned out. It’s supposed to be a Antherina suraka, but I’m not sure it’s super identifiable. This piece should be available @ Southern Makers & Artists Collective, but if you’re interested in it…

Circles with inside waves, shadow

I love doing abstract pieces like this, but I’ve never tried doing them in a shadowbox before. I love how it turned out! It will soon be available @ Southern Art Makers Collective . If you’re not in Montgomery and you’re interested in purchasing it, contact me.

Jellyfish float

I’ve been practicing shading, as you can see in this piece. I love how transparent it looks! This amazing work of beauty will soon be available at Southern Makers’ and Artists’ collective in Montgomery, or email me if you’re interested.

Nudibrach

I had to do this because I am, without qualifications, a science nerd. It was super hard, but it’s also super weird, and I love it. This piece is currently available at the Southern Art & Makers Collective, but if you’re interested in it and you’re not in Montgomery, contact me!

Mountains, shadow

This really simple shadowbox has a beautiful view of the mountains. This amazing work of beauty is probably available at Southern Makers’ and Artists’ collective in Montgomery, or email me if you’re interested.

Whale city shadow

This is like the fifth whale city piece I’ve done, but this is the first city inspired by Mont St. Michel, and the first shadowbox. I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with whales you can live on, but it’s a pretty great idea, if you think about it. This is also the first piece…

Still life with onions

Another in the still life line. These onions were pretty challenging, but I think I pulled it off. This piece is currently available at the Southern Art & Makers Collective, but if you’re interested in it and you’re not in Montgomery, contact me!
