Artist's Statement: The metamorphosis of a butterfly is a fascinating subject for the artist. The butterfly is a symbol of transformation, because of its impressive process of metamorphosis. By observing butterflies, we can relate to our own lives: moments of growing pains, times of hunger and vulnerability, moments of tremendous energy, expansion, wonder and amazement. Butterflies have the ability to amaze us and create a feeling of joy.
