Title: Belle of the Mothball
Edition: Limited edition of 50
Medium: Giclée print
Size: Paper – 13.1 inches x 18.5 inches
Image - 11 inches x 16.4 inches

Drawn to her iridescent hair or the radiance in her eyes, moths flock to this beacon of light, settling in the fuzzy cocoon of her hair.

The third in a series of works called Habitat Hairdos, where creatures have colonised the elaborately coiffed locks of lonely girls, the original painting from which this print is taken combines acrylic, spraypaint, pencil and enamel on wallpaper and board.

This portrait is concerned with preservation - just as delicate fabrics are protected by mothballs (playfully alluded to in shape of the necklace), so too is our ethereal debutante well-preserved and aloof from the ravages of time - her translucent beauty making her the 'Belle of the Mothball.'


All my works are printed on acid-free, archival quality art paper using Epson Ultrachrome pigment inks - and of course the watermark you see onscreen does not appear on the print itself.

Your print will be unframed, packaged in a cardboard mailing tube and sent via New Zealand Post International Air mail, which takes 3-10 working days. I'll mail the package within 3 working days of your payment clearing.

If you'd like to purchase more than one print at a time, not only will you make me extra happy, but you'll also only pay $1.00 in additional shipping costs for each extra print. Woop woop!
