Symphony of Butterflies


Susan Point

Musqueam, Canadian, born 1951

More than any other artist, Point has maintained consistent creative activity in the medium of printmaking, always pushing its limits in breathtaking ways. Her keen design sense has led to a greater experimentation in design and color.
