Kandy Phillips, Artist
Artists have been intrigued with insects for centuries. We see the painted insects in all their life stages in detailed floral still life paintings, or as stand-alone studies depicting metamorphosis. Join artist Kandy Phillips as she describes her experiences raising the butterflies and moths she paints, and our love/hate relationship with the insect world.
Kandy Vermeer Phillips is a volunteer in the Department of Entomology at the National Museum of Natural History where she curates moths. Her entomology illustrations are included in many scientific publications and her botanical illuminations are a part of the permanent collection of The Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
