The Butterfly Project

Spreading awareness of the importance of biodiversity and supporting the butterfly movement protect the butterflies. For every butterfly print bought 20% goes directly to saving the butterflies.

Vision

Butterflies are beautiful creatures and they are becoming more and more endangered because we are destroying their natural habitats. In the last 5 years more than 17 butterfly species went extinct alone. We live in a time where sustainability is the main topic. On a daily basis we are told about the importance of eating less meat, taking shorter showers, taking the train on vacation instead of flying, in order to be climate friendly – but what about the small things that are happening in our back yard?

In 2019 I am doing a project together with The Butterfly Movement to create focus on the importance of biodiversity and protecting the habitats and breeding plants of butterflies. Together with the Butterfly movement Denmark, I am doing an exhibition of my 50 butterfly paintings this autumn. The official dates will be released on social media later this summer. The butterfly movement has offered to come and do a lecture at the reception, to let us all know, what we each can do, to help the situation. The lecture will be filmed and shown on the website for those of you who are not able to join the lecture. I will be donating 20% of all of my sales from the project directly to the movement. I have also set up a way you can donate directly to the movement without purchasing anything via our Etsy shop. Let’s help each other spread awareness and protect the butterfly species we have left!

Here are some of our favorite butterflies.
See them all after the exhibition in November 2019
