About the Artist

Background:
For my bio, I would love to say that I have a Masters or PH.D from a wonderful Art Institute. But my lot in life, was to be married at 19 and raising 3 children by the time I was 26. However, I nurtured the artist spirit by trying every sort of art and craft possible, and never stopped reading and learning as much as I could, regarding whatever interested me at the time.

My first business entailed decorating wedding cakes, and the second was named Eggs-quisite, which although gratifying and honoring my Ukrainian heritage, was not that successful. And so it is butterflies, that have let me find my "creative niche!" My work is pure JOY!
 
Artist Statement:
"Several summers ago, while walking near our home, I found two dead Monarch butterflies. I brought them to my studio, just to admire their beauty, and they stayed on my worktable for a long while.

One day, while working with my Sterling jewelry, I decided to cut a small oval from one of the wings and try as an insert. The results were beautiful, and I had my family and friends on a "deceased only" butterfly lookout. One day, on the internet, I typed butterfly wings, clicked search, and surprisingly found breeders, butterfly farms, and conservatories all over the world. Many were kind enough to send their "naturally expired," and I immediately became butterfly enamoured. Because most species have such a short life span, there is a continuous source of wings. The sheer beauty and variety of species truly amaze me with design and color combinations. I am thrilled to be able to share the delicate gracefulness of these "fantastic jewels of Nature;" plus their symbolism of rebirth, regeneration and renewal carries a meaningful message to most everyone."

Technique:
Each butterfly wing is hand cut to fit the various Sterling and 14K Gold jewelry designs. I send the sketches for my designs to a company in Albuquerque, NM, where they make a mold and cast the pieces. They return to me, for placing the wing inserts.
