This gorgeous “Dragonfly” design was created by the well known artist, Andy Everson, to represent a brief moment in time in which the Blue-eyed Darner Dragonfly has stopped from its regular activity to rest on a cattail at the edge of a pond in a peaceful nature reserve. A sure sign that spring is drawing to a close is the appearance of the Blue-eyed Darner. With the warming season, this lovely dragonfly unfurls its wings and emerges in all its glory. Its shimmering hues of iridescent blue and brown make it easy to spot. Like other dragonflies, it zigzags through the air—often with a mate—looking like it is going to stop and then darting off in a blur of vivid color.

About the artist :
Andy Everson was born in Comox B.C. and named Nagedzi after his grandfather, Chief Andy Frank of the K’omoks First Nation. His cultural interests lay with both his K’omoks and Kwakwaka’wakw ancestors and are expressed through dancing, singing and art. To further his career, Andy has gone on to complete his Master’s degree in anthropology. From early self-taught lessons, Andy has tried to follow in the footsteps of his Kwakwaka’wakw reletives in creating bold and unique representations that remain rooted in the age old traditions of his ancestors.
