How intricate and full of character! And how I don't want to have the live ones in my house :D

I always stop by but rarely comment. Your work is stunning and is a favorite of mine. So creative, so beautiful. I must have some...

Nice! These are all so carefully but quirkily drawn.

Oh these are fantastic! They remind me of a drawer of insect specimens at a museum.

I do like to imagine how specimens are preserved - in little trays tucked away in dark places. Thank you all for stopping by today!

Your paintings & Style are absolutely beautiful. I love the creature and plants your paint! Do you know if spoonflower has prepared fat quarter bundles, or would I just mix & match on my own? I can't get the wood thrush, maidenhair fern, & willow buds out of my mind...I must quilt them! Thank you, wonderful work!

Hi Nora, thank you! On the Spoonflower website you can purchase each quarter yard or more individually for each pattern.
