I’ve always been drawn to natural history museums, particularly to old spaces packed with specimen drawers and taxidermy cases. My work deals with the complex, often fraught, interaction of humans with the natural environment — a connection expressed in these collections as researchers attempted to make sense of their world. Entomology collections especially intrigue me. I’m simultaneously captivated by the colorful patterns and graceful forms, and wary of insects in general — all the while recognizing they are a vital part of our living world.
