Red-spotted purple

I framed this red-spotted purple (I think the person who named a lot of these butterflies was colorblind), Limenitis arthemis astyanax, with four layers of card- blue, orange-yellow and two brown, trying to replicate and highlight the colors in the butterfly. I think I did a pretty good job. Here’s a side view

Luna shadow

I’m super proud of this piece. I tried pick colors and shapes that would really flatter the moth (Luna moth, Actias luna). I think it turned out really art deco. This amazing work of beauty is probably available at Southern Makers’ and Artists’ collective in Montgomery, or email me if you’re interested.

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…

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…

Whale city, float

How do you think this whale feels, having to carry around a massive city? Probably nothing, because it’s made out of paper? Are you sure objects made out of paper feel nothing? This amazing work of beauty is probably available at Southern Makers’ and Artists’ collective in Montgomery, or email me if you’re interested.

Gulf fritillary shadowbox

Thought this gulf fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) deserved a beautiful home, so I made this shadow box for it- tried to pick colors that would really show it off as it deserves. (All the insects I use were collected for entomology classes and then given to me when the classes were over). These intricate designs were…

Jellyfish, in color

This was a hard piece to do- jellyfish are mostly transparent- but they’re so pretty I had to try. Anyway, 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!

Fish in red and blue

I love making these weird koi- such vivid colors. This piece is available at Southern Makers & Artists in Montgomery or Mama Mocha’s in Auburn- I’ve lost track.

Still life with lemons

I made this while listening to John Mullaney stand up, so if it’s a little weird, that’s why. This gorgeous piece is probably available at Southern Maker’s and Artists, or DM me, if you’re interested.
