"Despite everything that has happened, and continues to happen, we grow; stronger, wiser, more resilient than before. Drawing from the perseverance of plant life, various stages of growth are explored through botanical-inspired forms. Embodying the inherent need for all living things to survive and thrive, the florae overcome seemingly harsh or inhospitable environmental obstacles in order to bloom."
"As we currently grapple with the consequences of climate change, this series seeks to remind us to find positivity and motivation to celebrate nature's small acts of resilience."
