Read her story below.


(Written by Betty)
I was incarcerated for 27 years. I do motivational speaking for churches, schools, and other events. I do a monthly newsletter for the Oakland Parole Department.  

I am grateful to meet life’s obstacles free, and to know that I am equipped to overcome them. 
Every day I accept the challenge of being exactly who I say I am, and I like her a lot. Facilitator over 15 years inside. If you don’t use it, you lose it. Giving what I found strengthened me. Participants poured into me as much as I poured into them. You cannot touch someone's spirit without being touched back. 
Betty M.


Butterflies are symbols of change and self-transformation. They are a metaphor for profound change in the chapters, seasons, and cycles of our lives. From the caterpillar to the cocoon to the first flight of an emerging butterfly new into the world shows how each part of the process of transformation is so important for growth. Therefore, as we change and transform our lives it need not be so traumatic, painful, and something to avoid, but rather it can be exhilarating, joyful, and freeing. Change and transformation is a continuous natural part of life.


Butterflies also are my symbol of healing and depict the beautiful transformation my life has become as I went through dark times and now spread my wings in the light of freedom.


All original art and prints come with a certificate of authenticity along with the limited edition number signed by the artist.
