The Peach Blossom Moth is part of my 30 September Moth Series, created in 2017. I love the subtle colors in the insect wings. Each moth in this series is paired with a black and white patterned paper, slightly distressed. The moths are then painted in acrylics.

Getting to Know Dana

“I am, what one model once quipped, an overly educated artist,” jokes artist Dana Aldis. Her creative practice is grounded in a strong foundation in academic arts. Dana’s training is apparent in the very fine execution of detail seen in her work, plus her consideration of subject matter. “I pay attention to the implied symbolism in the imagery I choose,” Dana says. Moths, which are featured in her “30 September Moths” series, hold symbolic meaning across multiple cultures. Each moth is rendered against a delicately painted background. Dana draws inspiration for her patterns from art books and fabric shops.
