A COLLECTION ENTITLED
The flowers collection is a botanical interpretation of growing up within a cultural melting pot.
It portrays how myself & my community blossomed together whilst at times feeling my own identity sat somewhere in between.
The seed of this collection was a product of me acknowledging & healing my own imposter syndrome. It enabled me to stop searching for parts of myself within different cultures & understand that one special element of my friendship circle was that we saw a piece of ourselves in each other.
If this collection & the work that follows serves as one thing, it should be a reminder to take the time to acknowledge the beauty within ourselves & around us which will reveal how we are all so similar & connected.
Seven FLOWERS create the foundation for this collection.
Each one is not only a homage of the singular cultures that have inspired my work but also a product of what they create when varying cultures cross pollinate their seeds.
