Words of Intention for 2019

As 2019 approached, I had the privilege of helping a Seattle family set their intentions for the new year. Each family member chose a word to encapsulate their desires for 2019; something they wanted to keep in mind all year long. I painted the words in gouache and adorned the background with intricate ink patterns. The pieces were framed and hung in each person’s room to serve as a reminder of their new years hopes. Turning each of their goals into a piece of art was such a meaningful process for me, and I felt honored to be part of this highly personal ritual of setting intentions.
