Insects are vital to an ecosystem. They pollinate fruit blossoms and vegetables; insects feed on an endless range of food, which helps an ecosystem with decomposition; some insects are even used as a form of pest-control. Unfortunately many people tend to overlook the importance of insects and the study of entomology. In this paper each section will introduce reader to the insect(s) involved in each artwork; the end will discuss how my artwork reflects the research of the insect, thus giving the readers a new understanding of the insect involved. My five projects used the intersection of art and entomology to present issues of habitat-loss, and to introduce to viewers a new perspective on and hopefully an appreciation of insects.
