Complexity, intriguing, mesmerizing, these are a few words that for me, describe an insect. The way they move, what they do for survival and their capability of going through metamorphosis, catches my attention. They are small complex organisms that I find myself more and more interested in as I explore their world. Due to their size they go unnoticed and many are on the verge of extinction. My fear of their extinction is what drives me to make the work I do. The idea of extinction is subtle, but a dominant characteristic amongst my work and can go unnoticed, similar to the existence of insects, but it is an essential element that is hidden by the intricacy of my work. I can replicate existing endangered insects, but I find more interest in creating and drawing my own interpretation of these insects, as it gives me the opportunity to create my own world. The intricacy of my projects stems from the idea and symbolizes the complexity of the insect organisms.
