Yumi Okita is the artist responsible for these exquisitely crafted members of the Lepidoptera family. She uses a wide variety of textiles and embroidery techniques to achieve a realistic feel. Most of her work is on a large scale with some specimens measuring almost a foot from wingtip to wingtip. She also crafts a variety of other insects but nowhere is her talent more evident than with these fragile, winged creatures. Yumi is currently based in North Carolina.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
