The Palos Verdes blue (Glaucopsyche lygdamus palosverdesensis) is a small endangered butterfly native to the Palos Verdes Peninsula in southwest Los Angeles County, California, United States. As its distribution has been proven to be limited to one single site it has one of the best claims to being the world's rarest butterfly.
”I am an illustrator, artist, and craftsperson. I love combining artwork with mechanical things, making new fashions out of ancient visions, swirling past and future together into meaningful eye candy. I am also an avid fan of many other artists, and enjoy the spirituality of making, sharing, and living out my art. Inspirations include: Faerie tales, science fiction, Victoriana, animals, alchemy, weird but cute creatures, and subversive sociological themes (like ladies being free!). I have an annual showing at Gargoyles on The Ave in Seattle (in autumn, of course), and have contributed to many shows, galleries, and art events with my peers.”
