"My Metamorphosis series repurposes work from over 45 years as a printmaker into new art which is environmentally friendly with as little waste as possible. Some of the upcycled art dates back to the mid-seventies when I studied Fine Art at York University.
The original art for this piece was of a window sill with geraniums. The texture of the window screen and the red of the flowers creates a vibrant butterfly.
Butterflies are a symbol of rebirth, in some cultures representing the souls of the departed. In the mountain area in Mexico where the monarchs overwinter after their long flight from Canada, their arrival coincides with the Day of the Dead. When I’m travelling, the appearance of a butterfly reassures me that no harm will come to me."
