Gardens | Spring Collection 2021
I am usually very certain about what I want to paint at the beginning of every season. But this year was different, I changed my mind and twice re-started this collection from scratch. A difficult year and the travel restrictions meant that I had to stay in London in winter for the first time in many years. And it felt like a very long winter, never before has my wait for the arrival of Spring felt so endless.
Something changed too: I moved to a new house with a small garden. Even though I grew up in Mexico with two gardens at my parent's house, this is the first time in my adult life that I have a garden of my own. I always loved plants and sometimes my house feels more like a greenhouse. I feel like I know a big deal about interior plants, but outdoor plants is a whole other world I've been learning about and studying in the last few weeks.
I've been growing seeds and bulbs in my kitchen, waiting for Spring and warmer weather. During this process of research and preparing the ground of my garden, I realized that I needed to create a collection that felt rawer but soft and delicate, to capture the smell of the earth and the promise of new blooms.
The name of my Spring collection is 'Gardens', and it is dedicated to all those open spaces that have been there for us to walk and be inspired. I know that walking through the different gardens last year helped me to stay positive, every step was a reminder that I was alive and at one with mother earth.
