Artist Statement

 

The Aphrodite Fritillary, named for the Greek goddess of love and beauty, is indeed a beauty. It is fairly common within its North American range and has the distinction of laying one egg among the violets. This Aphrodite Fritillary is all aflutter and full of love, delivering a bouquet of dahlias with an extra bit of heart. (<3)
