Drawn to Light: Moths by Deborah Davis

Drawn to Light: Moths by Deborah Davis Photo Traveling

At home in Charlottesville, Virginia, Deborah Davis describes herself as a painter, herbalist, and gardener. Fascinated by the extraordinary variety of moths that visit her garden at night, she began painting them about eight years ago. She portrays moths strikingly larger than life, revealing intricate patterns, colors, and features rarely observed by people in their casual encounters by porch lights. As nocturnal creatures, moths are inherently mysterious and intriguing to Deborah – on just about any warm night, she may be found hovering in the lure of the light, anticipating a new discovery and inspiration. Through her paintings, Deborah shares her appreciation for the beauty and diversity of moths – and hopes to instill a sense of awe and wonder among viewers.
