About DancingButterflyArts

Sales 2,006
On Etsy since 2013

Like the butterfly, ever changing expression.

By day I rescue captive big cats and rehabilitate wild cats for release back into the wild. By night I explore the creativity within.

I am the President of Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, FL. We are home to more than 40 big cats that have been rescued from terrible captive situations across the United States. These cats are provided a permanent home at our 67-acre sanctuary. Our mission is to provide our residents with the best care possible while advocating for legislation that will end the suffering of big cats in the US.

In addition I pioneered and continue to operate our Bobcat Rehabilitation Program. Orphaned or injured native Florida bobcats are rescued statewide. These bobcats are rehabilitated and released back into the wild giving them a second chance at freedom.

Animal rescue is more than a job, it is a lifestyle. There are no set working hours. The rescuer is on call day and night. Rescuers witness animals kept in deplorable conditions and are often faced with difficult life and death decisions. The life of a rescuer is not for the faint hearted, but rather the heart of a warrior. However even warriors need a way to deal with the stresses life brings.

The art works and vintage finds you will discover here in my studio bring balance to my world. I am excited to share these works and items I have collected and hope they bring joy to your home.

The name Dancing Butterfly is a tribute to my belief that the souls of lost loved ones both human and animal visit frequently in the form of butterflies. Their effortless dance has no boundaries.

A question that I receive from time to time is; What if any portion of the proceeds from the sale of my art is donated to Big Cat Rescue?

The Wildcat Watercolor, photography and paw print art you find here is created in my home studio in my spare time. I enjoy creating these works and sharing them and my love for the cats big and small with the world immensely.

Dancing Butterfly Studio does not donate a portion of the proceeds to Big Cat Rescue. I do not believe in advertising a portion is given to the cats as a marketing strategy. Instead a number of valuable pieces are given to the sanctuary each year to be sold or raffled. The proceeds from these items is far greater than the 10-20% of proceeds typically donated by artists. In addition I personally donate all of my photography (thousands of images per year), all of the digital files for the Wildcat Watercolor to be used for gift shop merchandising and graphic designs for brochures, advertising and gift shop products.
