Monoprint collage on birch panel
30 x 24 inches
Plants have been critical to my healing and my mental health. I cultivate plants in the same way that I cultivate my ideas and my goals. I am persistent and focused. Plants are a reciprocal species, they reflect back to you the energy that you invest. If you give them water, expose them to light, and remove the parasites, they thrive! They give you beauty and clean air. I started intentionally caring for plants after I ended an abusive relationship last year. Before, I generally liked plants but I did not pay attention to the nuances of their care. Now I know how much water each one needs, I know how to differentiate the kind of bugs they get, and I read their signs. I have hundreds of green family members in my home. I spend Saturdays caring for my green babies and feeling soothed by that good plant medicine.They all have a story. These two monotype collages reflect my love with my plants, and are available now.
