“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the butterfly calls the beginning.” (Source unknown)


In this 3-dimensional piece, which is unlike her previous work, Anastasia attempts to communicate her experience of transformation as a woman living with Bi-Polar Disorder and Menopause.

With often daily mood swings from low to high, dark to light, despair to hope, Anastasia is frequently subjected to the winds of change. Rather than fighting the now all-too-familiar dark, cocoon-like periods of low mood, she has learned to embrace them as fallow time, where energy can be conserved, and feelings safely held, in preparation for the ‘highs’ of transformation and emergence into the brilliance and beauty of the butterfly.
