When I moved to Oregon, it was mid December , the house we were renting had some interesting beetles overwintering in it ! Over the coming months I became fascinated by the incredible diversity of insect life inside and outside the house... and eventually did many drawings based on this exciting world. This wallpaper comes from a four plate etching I made , which was the beginning of my idea to do wallpapers , as the four plates enabled a print that , if collaged together , could grow to infinity - a good visual metaphor for the world of insects. I intentionally designed this to show the processes this wallpaper was born from; The feeling of the block print method gives it a hand made look reminiscent of the first wallpaper printing techniques.
