BUTTERFLY WING-SCALES

ABOUT THE 'BUTTERFLY WING-SCALES' SERIES

These paintings are depictions of the surface of butterfly wings, which are covered in millions of tiny vibrant scales.

Some of these pieces are based on actual butterfly species, others are looser interpretations of the concept.

I created these artworks as a reminder of the incredible wonder and magic that can be found in the world.
