Butterflies in Interesting Art Pieces

Not all of our customers put the butterflies they purchase into collections. Several of our regular customers are artists. Fern Petrie incorporates butterflies into the most interesting art pieces, some of which are pictured below.

All of the pieces were inspired by a book she first read as a child - 'The Butterflies Ball' by Alan Aldridge and William Plomer. She wanted each sculpture to become a little icon, a poem in itself to be treasured and wondered over.

These pieces as well as butterflies she has decorated with pen and ink will be shown at Art Melbourne this coming April. If you would like more information, please contact Fern directly.

If you would like your butterfly art displayed on this blog, please contact me.
