The blooming of the Cherry Blossom trees marks the end of winter and the coming of Spring. It symbolizes rebirth, regeneration and reinvention. My design is festive, it celebrates new beginnings and creative energy with an explosion of colors, hearts and shapes inspired by nature, elements that are constant in my body of work.
