The" Hand Painted Butterflies " are currently being collected all over Australia and beyond, with the Internet making it possible for people like yourself able to find us, and offer valuable suggestions, and share our enthusiasm for what we do.

Adrian Kosky was the originator of this unique concept. He began making the Hand Painted Butterflies in 1990, creating large murals of them in public places. The response was overwhelming, and soon needed help with the painstaking method of production required. His partner, Mish Dennerstein joined him in 1994 to open Wingspan Artworks, so they could keep up with the ever growing demand, and help develop a retail product and personalised service for it's expanding customer base. The studio now supports a number of Artists and crafts people, who help in the production, keeping the Butterflies a carefully hand made, Australian made product.

Why Butterflies?
All who work at Wingspan Artworks have a love of colour, design, fantasy and nature, and the Butterfly theme allows for a detailed exploration of all of these areas. They are such a strong symbol of life, freedom, change, beauty, and appeal to so many people for their fragility. The world, and all of our lives seem to be in a constant state of change, and the Butterflies for Wingspan Artworks are a symbol of the positive side to the changes.

We love what we do and hope a little of that spreads a long way!!

We are earning our wings to fly!!!!
