I am an artist in the UK and a little bit obsessed with insects! So a few years ago I tried to recreate my favourite specimens using recycled paper, wire and thread. I now have a collection of around 100 different species and am still adding to it! The insects are all hand cut using a scalpel and some of them are embroidered by hand to create their patterns and textures.
