The Story Behind the Name
I had posted about my flower press and a friend messaged me to see if I could make a piece of art for her soon to be daughter. I was thrilled! I had always pressed flowers and was excited to finally use them. I had goddess card deck lying around and picked a card to get inspired for fun:
La Flōra was drawn.
Flōra is the Roman Goddess of flowers, gardens, spring and new life. How fitting for her to be the inspiration for the piece for her soon to be daughter?! It was only appropriate that this story and my first piece become the inspiration behind the name of this new creative journey!
Flōra teaches us to honor growing things, even within ourselves. She reminds us to pay attention to pleasure, the beauty of life, wherever it is found!
