The Hawkmoth is a species of moth often coined as the hummingbird moth. It is known for its ability to hover in midair while collecting nectar. It is essential for it to display precision, delicacy and balance in order to achieve this task. This, in a nutshell, describes the works of Hawkmoth Arts. Co-owner of Arterra Wines Sandy Gray-Murray is also the artist and co-owner of Hawkmoth Arts. Because Sandy works so closely to the wine making processes of her husband, Jason Murray, Hawkmoth Arts has found its permanent space alongside Arterra Wines.
The artwork is entirely handmade utilizing a variety of media from ceramics and paintings to etched glass and carved wine barrels. Hawkmoth Arts serves patrons with a desire to own locally made artworks of unique and original design.
