This is a signed giclée* fine art print of my original hand drawn California dogface butterfly composition.

With the California dogface butterfly being the California state insect, this entomology print is the perfect California souvenir to remember this unique insect. A great outdoorsy gift idea, give this bug art to insect lovers, entomologists, nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, or anyone wanting to commemorate time spent in Southern California near the Santa Ana Mountains, this butterfly’s habitat.

Unframed prints — in sizes 8x10 inch, 11x14 inch, and 16x20 inch —are suited for home décor in family and living rooms, entryways, offices, bedrooms, or even as nursery decoration for those with a boho, eclectic style.

Created using certified archival watercolor paper and certified archival India ink, these fine art nature prints have a beautiful watercolor texture and vibrant color that will last a lifetime. The gold acrylic artists ink is hand-painted on to the print.

I created this composition to honor my home state, California, and its state insect. The illustration includes a detailed pen drawing of both a male and female dogface butterfly, with overlapping wings, painted with yellow, purple, and black India inks. The butterflies are surrounded by a gold circle, painted with gold acrylic artists ink. The entire piece explores the eternally symbiotic nature of male and female relationships and the fluid spectrum of gender expression. The composition speaks to both my feminist ideals and Christian faith.
