I loved researching Ukrainian folk motifs for this design, which is inspired by embroidery and pysanky and particularly the Tree of Life, symbol of hope and renewal. The colors are from the Petal solids range. We waxed and dyed eggs with patterns like these years ago and this project brought back a lot of memories.
Although these are very much my own imaginings and take, my intention was simply to learn more about the culture and to create this with great admiration and respect for the people of Ukraine. I’m donating any proceeds from this one to support the humanitarian effort underway there (happy to email receipts.) 🇺🇦
