Commissioned work

Life Cycle of the Australian Admiral Butterfly

Commissioned by South Regional TAFE in Albany, these sculptures depict the life cycle of a local butterfly.  TAFE came to us looking for some outdoor art and the only stipulation was that it fitted in with their native gardens.  We suggested a series of sculptures of a local butterfly, the Australian Admiral, symbolising a natural example of spectacular personal growth.
