Mary Quinn was born in Ireland into an artistic family, her Grandfather and Uncle were sculptors. She started off as a painter in her twenties, studying with Kenneth Webb the Irish Landscape Artist. It was only after marriage and 3 daughters that her attention inevitably turned to Sculpture. It took less than a year to convince her that working with clay gave her that "I have come home feeling". After studying the works of Rodin she spent the next 20 years perfecting her portrait skills

About six months ago my attention was drawn to an article about the decline of many rare butterfly species around the world. `Natural butterfly habitats have been destroyed or affected by construction of housing and shopping developments, as well as by the use of pesticides and other chemicals.` quoted one newspaper. This inspired me to create my idea of a butterfly fighting back. I decided to make the little body larger than usual and give him a more striking appearance as if he is saying: `Hi Guys. Look at me, I am important and I am majestic and beautiful. Save me from Extinction!`
