Arthropoda is a selection of pieces that reflect my constant enthusiasm and curiousity for the insect world around me.  Local insects and arachnids have always fascinated me, and creating works offers me a method to both study these creatures, and to share my love and curiousity. My works range from quick, plein-air studies in watercolor to more detailed relief and intaglio prints. These prints include ideas like symbolism, folklore, and habitat studies, particularly including local pollinating insects such as bees, ants, and butterflies.
