I've been talking about this project for a while now. To be honest, it really has had a hold on my mental for months now. Every-time I found myself wanting to start something new, to let it go and do something else, it said "nah." So after a months of delays and changes, it's finally here.
What inspired this collection
So fun fact about me, I used to work at a print design shop for about 3 years or so. Working there really shifted my approach to my art making more than I realize at first, but now I'm embracing it more. I started this year with my first box, "Ethereal" which was fun, but there were things I really wanted to push myself to do more of. So Sunkissed has a more cohesive design to it. From the actual unboxing experience to all of the items included, it's very intentional.
Sunkissed also kind of evolved from an observation. I am notorious for drawing on anything: Backs of envelopes from junk mail, random pieces of paper, and yes, even napkins. Lol sometimes it just happens before I even realize what I’m doing.
One of the default things I always seem to draw are flowers.
And I started to think “well why don’t I just make a series of paintings of…Flowers.“
I am not a believer that all art has to be so deep that it takes a thesis paper to explain why it was created. We create because we felt a connection to something, whether is a person, a thought, a feeling, an experience, etc. and sometimes that’s a good place to start.
The timing of the release of this box is extra special. It's the start of fall, I just moved into a new home, so this was the last art I made in another space. Sunkissed is a very transitional collection and as we shift and change, I hope this set can remind us to embrace change and the magic of transformation.
So what's inside the box?
