In his long career he produced hundreds of bronze sculptures, mainly of the human form but occasionally also of animals or still lifes. His work has been widely exhibited throughout Scotland and England as well as in Europe.
A number of his statues are in public museums in Edinburgh, as well as various public commissions in Edinburgh and Glasgow. He has also undertaken many portraits including of HRH Duke of Edinburgh, Lord Sutherland, Cardinal Gordon Gray, the poet laureate for Scotland Liz Lochhead, and other notable figures, several of which are in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
In his last years Butler concentrated more on watercolours and drawings, which will be also visible here, especially subjects depicting the Aeolian Island of Panarea, off Sicily, where he lives for part of the year.
