Artwork Description:

Title: Goliathus

I painted this Goliath Beetle from the Hope Entomology collections at The University of Oxford Museum of Natural History. I was intrigued by the sheer size of this beetle (they are among the largest insects on Earth) and the captivating metallic-shine on the hindwings.

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