This series of work was exhibited at The Eden Project in the Core Building, Mezzanine, as part of “Hevva Hevva” exhibition – 2012

  • Buff-Tailed Bumblebee
  • Common Carpet Moth
  • Common Green Grasshopper
  • Emperor Dragonfly
  • Hawthorn Shieldbug
  • Crab Spider

These detailed prints and etchings were created to inspire an interest in the native insects of Cornwall, providing an insight into their unique and mesmerising features only visible up close.

The framed drawings were exhibited inside the gallery space, and the etchings on local slate were positioned outside as interactive artworks for viewers to make pencil rubbings from to take away with them.
