Plants are Family Print
This piece was inspired by the book Braiding Sweetgrass in which author Robin Wall Kimmerer writes that “in some Native languages the term for plants translates to ‘those who take care of us.’” Not only do plants offer food, but also gifts of healing medicine, shelter, comfort, nostalgia. This print is an homage to these gifts, a reminder that plants are our family-- and they take care of us like family. Hand screenprinted in Portland, OR by Nina and Sonya Montenegro. Slight variations in ink application may exist.
