Feeling Buggy

I have a particular fondness for art featuring odd critters. Microorganisms, insects, and unusual animals fascinate me. I tend to include them in my own work and seek them out in others. Here is one of my creations featuring a beetle, which hangs in my bathroom. The beetle silhouette was cut from cherry wood and mounted on a scrap piece of mat board.

Etsy is a great place to search for unusual critters. It was hard to choose just a few, but here are some of my favorite Etsy finds featuring insects and their kin:


  1. Beautiful collection. I added some to my own favorites list on Etsy!
