Each of the insects has been an original painting. Reducing the scale I print the image using archival inks onto soft cotton art paper. I hand cut and finish the small images with a lacquered layer.
They are assembled into groups and carefully arranged into distressed vintage boxes the interior of which I individually decorate with my own designed wood cut prints. Finally a lasor cut perspex lid is fitted with tiny brass screws to complete the construction.
