Re: images for ECN Greetings Colin and Sci-Arters,

Yes, and yes!  I have copied this to the GNSI members list serve, they are generous artists and many I feel would share with you, if you are willing to make certain the work shared is clearly attributed to the artist.  Colin I think you will enjoy the response you receive.  I am happy to contribute images just write and let me know which images I have might be best for you.

Dear Marie,
I'm organizing a session at the ECN meeting in Reno on non-systematics uses of insect collections. Part of the session will include images of art that uses collection-based models. Do you have digital images of some of your work that I may display between talks at ECN? Do you know of other artists with specimen-modeled art?

Thanks much, colin
