“The main reason for painting moths and butterflies in the first place was for the feeling they represented for me - an image that reminded me of a feeling. I didn't do them to make pretty paintings. Both butterflies and moths have wings covered in tiny scales and that is where the fascination started for me. When I was looking at the species of butterflies in the local region I realised that the moths were actually more unique and interesting. I feel like the moths are more mysterious and also something that most people don't think of as beautiful or special. They are more overlooked. And I had some great interactions with local moths that made an impression on me”.
