Pattern Print Series
My pattern series is the newest series I’ve been working on. It started as a way to do a therapeutic freehand drawing during the mind-numbingly boring pandemic isolation that so many of us have been dealing with. The process has been so delightful, and it’s a way for me to channel some of my other interests into art—like witchcraft, herbs, and my love of making tea blends. The patterns all use witchy-related imagery—vines, moon phases, potion bottles, and more.
One of the best parts of creating intricate patterns is that it allows me as the artist to get lost in the work, and it gives the viewer something detailed and immersive to gaze at and find comfort in. I do believe that mindfully consuming art is a great aide to one’s mental health, and I put that philosophy into all the work I do. Art is valuable and necessary. Art is vital to people and imbues our life with beauty and purpose. I’m happy to be able to share my work with people, and have access to such wide-reaching platforms so that lots of people can enjoy my work.
