Hackberry Emperor Butterfly

The Hackberry Emperor (Asterocampa celtis) butterfly has become my favourite butterfly shape to work with of late. The Hackberry hails from North America and gets its name from the Hackberry tree on which it lays its eggs. I'm quite enjoying the potential I've discovered by playing in the studio with the interlocking shapes it creates. Futher news about new works featuring Mr Hackberry coming soon! #TheLepidopteristsLair/#Lepidopterarium

In the meantime the current exhibition at Cambridge Contemporary Art contains several pieces of my artwork (here). The exhibition continues until the 24th February. Contact the gallery for further details.
