I am super excited to launch my first painting of 2022, ‘Garden Insects of Britain’. This will be painting number 1 of 12 for this year’s launches.
This design will be available on wall art prints, greetings cards (with fun facts on the reverse!) and postcards.
I absolutely loved garden insects when I was a kid. I could be found in the mud looking for worms, turning over stones looking for various beetles, pond dipping for water beetles, collecting different types of ladybirds and I absolutely loved finding snails! At Alexia Claire, I aim to encourage children (and adults too!) to grow to have a love for the wildlife around them. I think it’s important to have a love for insects instead of a squirmish fear. They are beautiful and are actually the most accessible way for young children to get up close and personal with wildlife on their doorstep.
I can’t wait to share my next painting with you!
