Butler loves all executions of art and design, and teaches printmaking and plein-air drawing + painting. Printmaking and color theory are her primary focus, and she loves the multiple ways to explore and execute drawings and color relationships through the ancient medium. The tedious nature and surprise of the craft allows for endless discovery and she loves the never-ending possibilities it allows, and sharing that passion for discovery with her students.
As an active community member Butler supports several charities and produces awareness that benefit their efforts. She teaches art with Creative Creatures Collective and raises funds for Walking for Water.
