Artist of the Year
The Grand Prize winner of the 2022 Butterfly Festival art contest was Esha Shetty, a sophomore from Rick Reedy High School. The 2023 Butterfly Festival postcard and t-shirt are centered around her wonderful art!
"Winning the EmilyAnn Butterfly contest has been a truly gratifying experience and I'm very excited to have my butterfly displayed for people to see. The recent pandemic gave me a creative outlet to illustrate my ingenuity through art. I wanted to show that in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, one's imagination and creativity can still flourish. This coupled with my love of butterflies inspired me to create a butterfly boat. My intention was to showcase how imagination can help escape reality and take you to incredible places. I sincerely hope that my artwork kindles one's love for butterflies while contributing to the cause that the EmilyAnn organization stands for."
