A slice of my piece “Lepidoptera” is on the cover of the February issue of Genetics in Medicine, the magazine of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics. A friend from my graduate school days at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill's School of Journalism, Karyn Hede, is News Editor, and suggested they use my work on the cover. Thanks, Karyn!
It is based on a photograph I took of a Painted Lady Butterfly. It is a wholecloth quilt, painted with acrylic fabric paint and then quilted. Lepidoptera is the order of insects that includes butterflies and moths.
