“Now More than Ever” is a series inspired by the shapes, forms and patterns found on daily walks. Working from familiar or even ordinary surroundings and exploring improvisation, I intend to celebrate the grace of the natural world. “Winged Seeds, Seeds of Change” and “Samara” represent maple seeds. This specialized fruit is perfectly aerodynamic. The design enables the seed to travel long distances from the parent tree. These feathery like seeds are so delicate yet powerful as they remind us that nature’s very essence is that of rebirth and renewal. Nature guides us and teaches us about our own human capacity of renewal and resiliency.
