I love these bugs so much. They come from an Etsy store called irohandbags. There isn’t any information available about the creator, but the creations speak by themselves. They tell me that the artist is a nature lover , detail oriented, good with textures, skilled at combining different material…and just talented. Dear mystery artist: Congratulations!
Some of the materials used are fabric, cotton, fake fur, fabric paint, embroidery thread and wire. You can visit the shop here.
UPDATE: Thanks to my detective friend Christina Conway, we now know the name of the artist: Yumi Okita. Thanks Chris and Congratulations Yumi Okita!

Love these insects! Also love your drawings and paper cutting. Please send me updates of new drawings you have for sale…or prints of drawings. I would like to purchase a print.
P.S. I’m an artist too…mainly sculpture. You can check out my work by doing a google image search on my name, Laurie Hassold.
Wow. It’s pretty cool that you caught the eye of such a phenomenal artist as Laurie Hassold.
If truth, then I do not like insects. But butterflies made Utah Okita struck me with its originality and some unreal reality!

Any of you know how to buy these butterflies, will appreciate your help on that. Her Esty shop is not active, no one replies my messages.
