Three moth embroideries by Jessica Merle

MOTHS

I’ve spent a lot of time learning about moths. Their myriad cocoons astound me and the biochemical process of their metamorphosis just leaves me in awe of nature. Moths are beautiful and mysterious, and they have always been the biggest source of inspiration for my work. And yet I am terrified of them! I have a very clear memory of being a young child and seeing for the first time the monstrous moths of summer and feeling very wary.

It is an important part of my creative process to research and understand every moth that I embroider, even just a bit. I love and respect nature, and knowledge is crucial to preserving our earth.
