Shop coming soon...

Garden Visitors: Dainty Swallowtail, Papilio anactus above and Orchard Swallowtail, Papilio aegeus, the latter shows the difference between the male pattern on the left and the female on the right.

I am very glad to inform all the faithful readers and followers that I am working to produce high quality prints of my artwork to sell. I would like to thank all the people who have already contacted me asking for details about their favourite artworks, for their patience and awesome support.

I'd love to keep hearing from you, so if you have any enquiry, even just to let me know about your favourite artwork and your country, please don't hesitate to contact me via email, FaceBook, comments following the posts and subscribe to the newsletter, so that I can keep working on putting things together.

Every artwork on this blog can become a print for you to take home.

Watch this space!


The Caterpillar of an Orchard Swallowtail is a noisy chewer, on the early stages the larva resembles a bird dropping, it later changes into a camouflaged green. Who could ever tell that from a bird-dropping-looking tiny creature an amazing butterfly will later develop?


  1. How beautifully you have portrayed your swallowtails. We don't get them this far south unfortunately.
    Coincidentally, I have been photographing a perfect wanderer today, where at this season one would only expect an old and tatty one.

    Lovely work Matteo.

  2. ohh!! I love your butterflies and pre-butterflies studies!

  3. Matteo your blog is getting more and more beautiful every day - I love the swallowtails and there is so much to look at here. I would love to know how many hours you spend a day on your artwork/blog/photos etc. It is extremely time consuming so I imagine you have set up your life well to focus on your passion. Wonderful news about the prints and shop etc - you are going to be very busy! Very best wishes to you and very fine work xx

    1. Thank you Vicki! Well, I'm no longer spending much time on my blog, I'm rather happy with it at the moment, it's been quite a process to get it right. On the artwork, it depends, I like giving my best in short sessions so I can enjoy more the whole process. To be honest, I don't do this everyday, which for me at the moment is good because it increases my eagerness... although, when I'm not actually working on painting I'll usually work on researching and putting things together, colour charts, image files, photo taking, designing new stuff, and of course looking to nature, you know, those kind of things.. Thank you very much for your whishes!

  4. Hi, Matteo,
    So beautiful. Thank you. Hope you can contact many customers.
    Cheers, Sadami

  5. That's really exciting news Matteo, I am sure there are loads of people out there who would love to own some of your art, (including me!!). Your work is beautiful and you have kept us all entertained with your adorable garden visitors. Best of luck with the prints. x
