This is what I need for working at night nowadays

Amsterdam-based artist Cedric Laquieze (previously featured here) recently completed a fascinating new series of his exquisite taxidermy Fairies. These delicate sculptures are primarily composed of parts from many different insect species, but if you look closely you’ll notice bones, seeds and even a few scorpion parts as well.

Visit Cedric Laquieze’s blog for many additional images and to check out some of his other enchanting creations.

Bug Collection

Here’s what I put together recently and called it my Bug Collection. I have a lot more coming since most of these are gone already :D

getting buggy

I’ve been developing a new series of earrings! trying to get them done while its still summer…

specimens I’ve been collecting for inspiration

I made an etsy account! I still have to list more stuff but its a start :)

This was an illustration I did for my friend Teal who wrote a story about the sun and moon fighting and trying to be more than the other. It was back in 2007 I think, when I was living on Vancouver Island. My Dad recently sent this picture to me, he always loved it and was so proud. I wish we finished this project and actually got it published. I know I have a few dozen more drawings that go with it. I’m thankful to my dad for always encouraging me with my art endeavors.

One last hug before I took it down! looking for a new home for the tree :) sorry for the blurry image!

hooked

I moved into a lovely little cabin off the grid at the beginning of May, and spent all month working on getting it set up so I haven’t done much art since the move. Which has been hard on me! haha. I did make this rug though! I used a giant crochet hook and 2 inch strips of fabric.

Happy Easter
