About this project

This is an ongoing project, studying and recording the diversity of the Insect Kingdom.  I sculpt life-size insects using recycled paper, wire and thread, displaying them in a variety of different displays inspired by natural history museums and cabinets of curiosity. As a child I found these displays fascinating and enjoy creating work that evokes the same childish curiosity in the viewer.
