For those that don’t know, I used to volunteer in the entomology department at the Natural History Museum in London. My absolute favourite insect ever, ever, ever, is the weevil (it’s probably in your best interest not to start a conversation with me about weevils, I’ll start telling you how cute their rostrums are…),
I’m extremely fond of scanography, especially of natural objects such as plants. This was an experiment in attempting to recreate the effect of a flower by placing the petals in place on the scanner. I think I may experiment further with this idea!
In 2010 I visited Nepal for the second time with the charity Gorkha Learning for Life. The charity is dedicated to helping the people of Gorkha, Nepal by bringing education and health to their children. I had an amazing time and the whole experience was phenomenal: I would recommend it highly! Pictured in this
