About the Prints
A butterfly can only earn their wings after struggle. Each summer, Designer Rebekah Lowell rescues, raises, and releases monarchs— her highest number so far being 154 in 2020. Emerge takes a closer look at the monarch’s plight for survival from egg to winged wonder to witnessing metamorphosis into beautiful new creatures. As a survivor of abuse, Rebekah has found that the monarch speaks to her heart and gives her hope and strength. Within the fabric, you will find a poem that Rebekah wrote from a monarch’s point of view.
About the Artist
Rebekah Lowell grew up in a house built by her father surrounded by a field of wildflowers. Charmed by her grandfather’s stories of his time spent outside, she learned how to spin narratives from nature. This love of nature and art bloomed into a career as an author/illustrator and surface pattern designer. When not in her studio, you can find her outside—gardening, nature journaling, birding, and of course, raising butterflies— often with her daughters.
As a survivor of domestic abuse, she’s found comfort in art and the natural world, and especially in raising monarchs and creating artwork inspired by them. Her debut novel in verse, THE ROAD TO AFTER (Nancy Paulsen Books) offers a story of healing from trauma, and her debut picture book CATCHING FLIGHT (Doubleday Books for Young Readers) provides hope on the wings of birds.
Rebekah has a BFA in Illustration, an MFA in Children’s Literature and Illustration, and is currently studying Natural Science Illustration.
