Lepidopterology addict is a continuing body of work focusing on moths, with the 'occasional butterfly'. Moths are often overlooked, undervalued and misunderstood. In my nature and figurative work they are a metaphorical celebration of the underdog!
This collection comprises of small, detailed and vibrant watercolour paintings encompassed in fine silver leaf and various tones of 24ct gold.
