“Monarch Pages”, a self-published artist book, will be available. This accordion-style book expresses my deep concern for the increasing loss of monarch butterfly habitats throughout Canada and the USA. The blind-contour drawings reflect the precarious situation of the monarch. The butterflies appear to be barely holding together, fragile, yet clinging to life. Each page represents a habitat and is loosely connected to the next by threads that might easily come apart. Metaphorically, the poetic text asks how many pages can be lost before the unique cycle of the monarch migration is broken.
Also, for sale will be original artist cards suitable for framing.
