Inspired by the modern woman who is well put together. The concept of this artwork draws parallel to ‘Ikebana’, the contemplative practice of Japanese flower arranging in which one practices embracing nature as it is.

Recent commission for a closed door event organised by Perk By Kate aimed at empowering women in celebration of their natural beauty.
I have initially first worked this piece with ink, however I found that I was not able to achieve the chalky effect I have envisioned for this piece of work. So I decided to render the artwork on Procreate on my iPad Pro. Thankfully my client, Kate was open to this option and gave me the green light!
Sometimes it is about letting the process take you and finding your flow. The final result was what I wanted and more. :-) Thank you Kate for giving Wood&Lead a platform to be part of this meaningful conversation!
