Peaceful English Scene

My latest work involves three books, combining butterflies, moths and wild flowers in one sculpture, using only the images from the books themselves. Utilising more than one book at a time is a new departure for me, but I very much enjoyed working with that extra dimension that it provided.

“A large butterfly book lies open on the table, two little wild flower books strewn casually across the top.¬† As though by magic, a profusion of wild flowers springs from their pages, carpeting them in layer upon layer of green fronds and an intricate kaleidoscope of floral colour. Butterflies and moths ¬†escaping the confines of their book, now fluttering gently in amongst the flowers, alighting on their fresh and delicate petals – completing the scene of a glorious, peaceful English spring.”
