Sacred Scarab

by Nicole Grosjean

I have always been fascinated by ancient Egypt, and completely enthralled by their style of artwork. This paper scarab beetle is framed by gilded glass, featuring 24k gold leaf, abalone veneer, and semi-precious stones. The wings are made from abalone shell and turquoise with carnelian accents, and hold a large carnelian sun disk that catches the light beautifully!

Nicole Grosjean graduated with a BFA in illustration from the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in Denver, Colorado in 2008. She combines her passions for fantasy and craftsmanship into unique, multi-layered works of art. To her, there is nothing more valuable than an object an artist has created with their own hands. She endeavors to build pieces that are not only illustrations, but wonderfully complex environments in their own right. Nicole is constantly trying new techniques and pushing the boundaries of materials and mediums to bring her visions to life.

Her sculptural illustrations are patterned from detailed drawings, hand-cut, and then layered to create various depths depending on the size of the piece. The layers are then painted in watercolor and gouache, and are often back lit with LED lights.
