About This Series

Arts NE I fell in love with moths as a child,  finding them like magical messengers drawn to our light from another realm, especially the ones that appeared suddenly out of complete darkness with their hidden flashes of color. The luna is perhaps the most astonishing, with its otherworldly hue, brief life span  and rare appearances. Over the last two years I raised lunas inside my studio’s bay window  in order  to  capture something of their mysterious poetry.
