How Plants Come to Life

Artist’s Statement

How Plants Come to Life is a short zine about how plants have a certain level of sentience to provide sanctuary to people who need it. They give us a break from the artificial feeling that our modern lives can have. They can appear around us either by our invitation or by their own generosity.
