This line is inspired by the amazing, majestic monarch butterfly. Their annual migration from Mexico to Canada—2,500 miles—is powered by small, delicate wings. I feel a powerful connection to the monarch, since I was born and raised in Mexico, have lived in Canada, and now live in the USA. Small wings, but such power. Small is beautiful. Small does not mean insignificant.Habitat loss, adverse weather events, and herbicides have contributed to a steep decline in monarch populations over the last 20 years. It's hard to imagine that our grandchildren might not be able to learn and see the great monarch migration. My salute to the monarch in this butterfly collection is meant to help raise awareness about this issue.
