Tessa Farmer's Macabre Insect Art

How shall I describe Tessa Farmer's artwork? Well, for one, she uses insects as a central part of her minuscule sculptures:

Tessa Farmer’s miniscule sculptures reinvigorate a belief in fairies: not the sweet Tinkerbell image in popular conscience, but a biological, entomological, macabre species translating pastoral fable into nightmarish lore. Constructed from bits of organic material, such as roots, leaves, and dead insects, each of Farmer’s figures stand barely 1 cm tall, their painstakingly intricate detail visible only through a magnifying glass.

I like her artwork, it is really great, I wonder how this is achieved, with what medium, is it tiny sculptures on top of a real insect or is it computer generated images?

I've gotten interested now, I shall go and seek her work out through Google!
