Its Mysterious Life: an appreciation of beetles

Carla Elizabeth DeMello is an Ithaca, NY artist. All her life, she’s worked and played with any material that catches her eye—colorful, sticky, natural, malleable, goofy, or beautiful. Her paper sculptures pay tribute to beetles and are a way to creatively engage people to appreciate these fascinating creatures. Including quotes from some of our great naturalists may inspire us to appreciate and explore both our inner and outer worlds.
