ArtDrive 2017 Insectum Obsession

Patience is a Virtue

2017 has been the busiest year yet for me as a Freelance Creative! I've been going non-stop for months working on multiple projects and had little time to post on my poor neglected website. So a big thank you must be said to my ever patient subscribers! I really do appreciate you standing by me.

Last time I left you hanging with a sneak peek of this years ArtDrive installation, artwork by myself and Kim Tetlow. Well, our collaborative piece Insectum Obsession has been successfully completed and installed out on McConkey Road in Greenough!

Insectum Obsession

Scientists estimate that an astounding 4 million types of insects remain undiscovered, along with half a million spiders. The word "insect" comes from the Latin word insectum, meaning "with a notched or divided body", or literally "cut into”. Together we have enthusiastically “cut into” op shop finds, trash and recycled goods to build our own unique collection of strange and unusual invertebrates. Transforming the previously old, discarded and unappreciated into a state of new fascination - much like a caterpillar to a butterfly.  Enjoy discovering our critter creations - exciting new species found right here in the Midwest.
