Butterfly Portraits

The beautiful but short life of a butterfly reflects the process of spiritual transformation and reminds us that life is short. Not only the butterfly is beautiful, she also carries mystery, symbolism and meaning. In many cultures she is a metaphor for spiritual rebirth, transformation, change, hope and life. This beautiful creature inspires me to create dreamy fantasy-like portraits. Using bodypainted models, handmade butterflies, artistic wall hangings, floral arrangements and theatrical costumes and accessories, I create temporary conceptual settings that I photograph to give it a lasting character. Creating this kind of staged photography, blurring the line between reality and illusion, is very labour intensive because everything you see in the image is real and is designed and created by myself.

'The Butterfly Portriats' are available as Limited edition Fine Art prints (unframed, 1cm white border) printed on museum-quality paper. All limited edition works are individually signed, numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Once an edition of a specific print is sold out, it will no longer be available. In my shop you will also find printed interior cushions and outdoor bags featuring the 'The Butterfly Portraits' artworks.
