'Thunderstruck’ is one of four large scale drawings created especially for the Folkestone Museum. By invitation, I took inspiration from the victorian taxidermy collection housed at the museum. As a child I would visit the majestic diorama in the library. I recall feeling struck and giddied by the cabinets of insects, such as; butterflies, moths and beetles. This visual storytelling of taxidermied wildlife has stuck with me to this day.
It was a great hounour to create this collection titled ‘Force of Nature’, featuring wildlife, flora and fauna native to the bygone British Isles, as well as, what remains to this present day. Biro and colour pencil on paper
