A true labour of love! "Butterfly Symphony" contains 188 beautiful and colourful butterflies cut out of Japanese chiyogami papers and sheet music.
They start their lives in the piano as sheet music and as they emerge from the piano they become monochromatic, until they fly ever higher catching the rays of the sun, which imbues their wings with bright and vibrant colours.
I love using paper as it is malleable and brings additional movement to my art.
I hope that this brings joy to the viewer. It certainly uplifts me every time I look at it!
