This past Saturday during my pop-up shop at West Elm Montreal, I met a lovely person who stumbled upon my work while shopping in the store. We chatted about travels and life in Montreal as she looked through hundreds of prints.
She told me she had bought and hung three frames on her wall over a year ago, but could not find anything that absolutely inspired her to put in those frames. Her friends would mock her when they'd come over, begging her to please just fill those empty frames with even just a sheet of colored paper.
She was so happy to discover my work, and to finally fill that empty wall. I was so touched, especially because we may have just as easily not have crossed paths at all.
Among the prints she chose was a brand new one in my Montreal collection called "Bloom where unlikely". This captured my eye because sometimes beautiful things come when you don't necessarily expect them, and they have the power of moving you.
From my heart to yours.
