Description We had a female spicebush butterfly eclosed on Valentine's Day 2011, and hence, we named her Valentine. She posing on the roses my husband gave to me. Since it was too cold to release her, we kept her as a pet and fed her sugar water on a sponge.
Valerie Evanson, Phoenixville, PA Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement Welcome to my Imagekind store! This store features the largest selection available for prints of my paintings, drawings, sculptures and photos.
My fine art explores various mediums through abstraction and realism. Cats, horses, monarch butterflies and old buildings being reclaimed by nature are common subjects. Currently, we share our house with 3 Maine Coon cats and about 40 tropical fish. During the summer we raise monarchs and other butterflies as a family project. You can follow our monarch journey through Facebook as well as find educational info on raising monarchs and milkweed.
