2021 Cover Artist ~ Meera Lee Patel

With a new year come new stories, six new issues, and of course a new cover artist for Taproot. We're thrilled to introduce Meera Lee Patel as our 2021 artist for this, our tenth year of publication!

Meera Lee Patel is a self-taught artist and writer, based in the northern woods of Nashville, Tennessee. Through her work, she aims to inspire and encourage others to connect with themselves, each other, and the world around them. Meera has written and illustrated a selection of books and journals for self-exploration and designs a beautiful stationery and gift line as well. We are so honored to welcome Meera to the Taproot family of artists and can't wait to share her bright and joyful work with you on this year's six covers ~ ROOTS, EMERGE, PLAY, FABLE, SUSTAIN, and NEST. 

We hope you'll join us for a year ahead filled with stories of food, farm, family, and craft to inspire and connect us all. Here's to 2021!
