Welcome to Butterflyhands!

As Winnie the Pooh said to the butterfly:
“How nice of you to flutter by!”

I am from South Africa and live in France since 2011.  I’ve always been fascinated by paper. Beautiful coloured paper, handmade paper, the clean pages of a new journal and so the list can go on. I love journals, but I’m not very good with words so I have nothing to write in them.  But…. this is an art blog, so I won’t use paper for writing,

and also not for folding….

but for creating art.

I hope some art you will enjoy.

    Ek tel die wonderlikste gevoude goed(jies) op terwyl ek werk. Daar is baie Asian kinders in die skool.


  5. Hi Cecily. Thanks for replying. I took some basic level art classes in high school. I never studied any art extensively. I just use very basic techniques in my artwork, as that’s all I’ve come to know. I hope to find my style over time though.

    Hi, I found your blog on Google when looking for artists I could use for research for my GCSE art coursework. I really love your work – especially the work with satin, which fits in perfectly with what I have planned for my current topic – and was wondering if you would mind me using you as one of the artists in my artist research? If so I would need a little more info on you… e.g. name, year of birth, how you got into art, where(/if) you have studied art, your favourite subjects and mediums, pastimes, etc.
    I’d be really grateful for your help!
    Steph :)
