I appreciate all winged insect for their form and function. But there's something about the beetle that exudes an strength and fortitude, though she is often underestimated. Let this piece be a reminder that you are more than what others might expect.
The Art Nouveau style was a design aesthetic popular in the US and Europe from 1890-1910 that can be seen in art, architecture, and craft of the time. Flowing lines, and natural themes were popular elements in AN design. Artists and craftspeople were trying to break away from old ways of doing things, and so the "modern" or "new" aesthetic took hold, and paved the way for the very popular art deco style. The feelings of playfulness, whimsy, and wanting to pioneer new ways of being are what draws me to the AN aesthetic, and what I hope to capture with these pieces.
