Insect Sculptures In Progress

A little update on my insect sculptures! I've made a few into double-brooches and have been experimenting with new building techniques to make them hardier and faster to make so I can lower prices. I am expecting to have at least 100 little insects available for sale through my solo show in April 2015 at la Luz de Jesus Gallery! So excited to see them all hanging together!







More updates to come!

Insect Sculptures

A horde of critters being painted and prepped on my desk! I've got bees, dragonflies, beetles, and a TON of cicadas- my favorite...
