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

Cicada shadow

This cicada has found her forever home in an explosion of yellow and darker yellow. Collected dead and spread (that’s what we call pinning the insect so the wings will stick out. I love dog-day cicadas- I love the weird noise they make in the trees and I think they’re so beautiful. This amazing work…

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.

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.

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.
