Professional artist, avid scuba diver, naturalist with a love for capturing images of macro life, underwater and topside. My main interest is in arthropods!
Currently based in Vancouver, Canada. I still have a backlog of observations from Australia to get to...
I am still learning about insects, arachnids and other arthropods, especially fascinated with jumping spiders, harvestmen, and globular springtails currently.

I aim to improve IDs only and will make suggestions to genus or species level if I feel confident, but as an amateur I make mistakes! If I made a wrong ID, please let me know, I am more than happy to withdraw the ID and learn.
