These works, titled “Self Care Bouquets” represent the small ways in which I create a loving and nurturing space for myself in the age of pandemic. While I'm a fierce plant mama, I wasn't really into flowers as much, until the pandemic. Recently, I’ve really enjoyed going to my local farmer's market and getting in-season, fresh flowers to create bouquets throughout my home. Despite the fact that for most of the time, I am the only one in my house, I really love having a weekly practice of beautifying my space and adding color.
For this series, I’ve been experimenting with my new linoleum block patterns, which are composed of my favorite shapes. I love the way in which each vase has its own flavor.
