Cassandra Bohne-Linnard is a native Houstonian who has been painting as a hobby for many years. After retiring from the corporate world she dedicated herself to her young family and in this environment her artistic creativity flourished. After painting "Freedom" an abstract oil painting of a blue butterfly, she was inspired to design her first butterfly dome as a memorable gift to her husband to celebrate the birth of their last child, using butterflies to represent each member of her family. The piece was so widely admired that she soon began Blue Butterfly Designs, creating unique butterfly domes and keepsakes for all of life's special occasions.
In January, 2020, Blue Butterfly Designs received the award for BEST ONLINE BOUTIQUE at the Bridal Extravaganza Show in Houston, Texas as voted by thousands of attending brides.
We work with each client to customize designs that truly capture the essence of the occassion or that complement existing home decor. The price for each piece varies - factors affecting price include butterfly species; size, quantity and rarity of butterfly; size/type of dome or shadow box; and design effort involved.
Most pieces are ready in 4-5 weeks. Holidays may impact completion time. All custom orders require a 50% deposit. All sales are final.
All of the butterflies used by Blue Butterfly Designs have died of natural causes; we do not promote the harming of butterflies in any way. Due to the delicate nature of the preserved butterflies, the pieces should be kept out of direct sunlight.
