artist portraitAbout the Artist. My name is Joe Lapp, but I'm known as "Spider Joe" in Austin, Texas. I study spiders and teach people about spiders, mostly educators and children. I've loved insects all my life, but I did not learn to like spiders until about 2004. I also enjoy creative nature writing and improvisational tai chi. I'm a software developer by trade, but nature is my source of creativity.
