Artwork Description:

Title: Coleoptera Study

I drew this beetle from different viewpoints, focusing on the fine details using a stereo microscope. This is not a scientific illustration, but more of an artist interpretation and a discovery into the fine intricacies of this fascinating insect.

Beetles are insects that form the order Coleoptera

Artist Bio:

I am a Derbyshire-based, artist/illustrator and art tutor.

I have a degree in textile design, and a masters from Central St Martins in Communication Design/Illustration.

My inspirations include natural history, explorers and naturalists, Hitchcock films, kitchen sink dramas, ghosts & haunted housesĀ  and Agatha Christie and Daphne du Maurier novels.

I am currently working on a series of Shackleton illustrations which evoke the foreboding atmosphere and historic accounts of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, as well as developing an idea for a graphic novel inspired by Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
