'Tiny Survivals'

passion is sourcing antique entomology collections of butterflies, moths and beetles, which I restore to create unique artworks. I am inspired by a deep connection with the natural world and a passion for the past.
I also make artworks using bees, naturally deceased and gathered from local hives.
I carefully weave together stories and history into each piece, all of which come with a numbered certificates of provenance.

All specimens are strictly non-endangered, ethically and sustainably-sourced.
