I never saw another butterfly.


Typical of me to jump from lovely snow ladies that you want to have high tea with, to a frankly disturbing moth/butterfly for an exhibition commemorating the children who perished in the Holocaust. This work has even disturbed me.
Probably as a result of facilitating the gentle butterflies that my students (most of whom had never sewn before) created. I wanted to make a butterfly that was more representational and challenging.
