My Promise to You…

All insects are mindfully sourced.

This means that all insects come to me dead & dried in little paper envelopes to be rehydrated & posed. They are real specimens from worldwide insect farms that cultivate insects specifically for scientific and art purposes. Farming saves rainforests and increases butterfly & other insect populations.

All insects used in my art are acquired AFTER natural death. I DO NOT CATCH OR KILL ANY INSECT USED IN MY ART. I do not deal in ANY endangered insects (illegal), and I deal with very few CITES species (just the occasional birdwing butterfly). Insects used for my purposes are farmed in a sustainable fashion. I only buy from reputable, authorized, & licensed sellers.
Thank you,
