About the Butterflies:
I am passionate about insects & ecology. I am very selective about where my specimens come from. The are Purchased Legally, and Ethically. (Obtaining wings from US Butterfly houses after death is not ecologically sound and in some cases it is also not legal)
The Butterflies used to create these pieces are bred on farms all over the world; I legally purchase them creating revenue for the farms and protecting the ecology by only using clean specimens. The specimens are exported in a preserved manner to generate some of the financial resources required to maintain and protect conserved land. I receive them un-spread and un-mounted, I do that work myself. Relaxing, spreading, and mounting the insects takes days.
Not all of the butterflies bred on these farms are sold as specimens many are released into the wild to mate and maintain healthy species populations.
