Love is a theme that I’ve been exploring a lot over the past few years, in my work and in my own personal life. I read an amazing book, All About Love by Bell Hooks, and it absolutely changed my world through its perspective on what love truly means. I’ve been pretty focused on the concepts in it ever since (and even got my first and only tattoo, a small heart on my wrist, to commemorate how important its messages feel to me).
My goal as an artist is to spread beauty — to scatter it around like seeds, and hope that it grows. This print is a celebration of love, and perhaps a gentle, floral-inspired reminder to weave more love into our daily lives, like these soft, elegant flowers gently weave and dance themselves around it.Anyway, for me, it’s clear that we can never have too many reminders in our lives to be more loving, to ourselves and others.
So, when Nine x Nine came to me wondering if I’d like to work on a print for them, we quickly settled on a print themed around love. You can check out the print, available in lots of different sizes and even have it framed, on their website, along with a lot of other great art from artists I admire.
