A butterfly of friendly creations turned up. Artist Amy Hoeffel accepted my invitation to imagine butterflies, through her unique photographic eye and approach. Using old school film techniques, Amy layers multiple exposures and special developing processes to achieve images of spontaneous, improvised beauty.
Amy has given the butterfly in me a warm reception on many occasions. It was her generosity that gave me the courage to show some images last fall, by joining her in a gallery space for the Riverwest Art Walk – an experience I am still learning from.
Thank you, Amy and my butterfly dears, for bringing your eyes to the butterflies!
