I was sitting at a coffee bar nestled between a bright yellow community arts centre and hilly street in a small fishing town in Nova Scotia. The main floor apartment I was staying in had a flimsy coffee maker and noisy tenant on the floor above, so I’d found a home in this cafe, its peculiar hours, and wobbly wooden desks. The owner decided to decorate the inside that day with an abundance of fresh flowers in clay pots, hoping to will the spring into existence to break the cold outside.
I traced the lines of one of the ranunculus flowers on the windowsill with my eyes, following the curves of its outer petals into its tightly wound center in circles. From then, the ranunculus flower became a symbol of renewal; that sometimes it takes venturing far from your center to find it again. But no matter how far gone you feel, you will always make your way back. Often slower to bloom, the ranunculus flower also serves as a reminder that good things come from growing slow.

This print is packaged with sustainability at the forefront, and I am always looking for more eco-friendly options! For protection, my artwork is sealed in an eco-friendly slip that has a similar appearance and feel to plastic, but is actually made from plant-based PLA and is compostable (it is not home compostable, however, it is the best I can currently find).
To ensure your artwork stays safe as it makes its way from you to me, it also rests against a white backing board made from 100% recycled fiber, 90% post-consumer waste materials, and is pH neutral. Aside from providing the print with additional support, it is also great for framing your artwork!
Tucked inside your package will be a few little notes made from 100% wildflower seed paper so you can start a small garden of your own. Plant them in ⅛ inch of soil, water thoroughly, and place in a sunny spot to grow a colourful bundle of wildflowers.
