The Majestic Butterfly series encompasses one of my favorite subjects, the butterfly, in a whole new manner. I start with the silhouette of a butterfly and incorporate imagery and icons into the wings to create an entirely new composition. All aspects of the butterfly are hand digitized and designed. Each wing is filled with imagery. The themes include Celestial, Buddhas, Tarots, Florals, Spiritual themes and Animalia. I started this Majestic Butterfly by embroidering on strips of luxury brand paper packaging which were then hand-trimmed and mounted together to create the background. The butterfly itself is stitched using over 500,000 stitches of embroidery thread and is mounted in relief.

The art comes framed in acrylic and is signed and numbered by the artist.
