I think that it is safe to say that nearly everyone is eagerly awaiting the time when we can get back to doing things together—face to face. As a country and as a local community, we have made tremendous progress in knocking down the COVID-19 infections, thanks to the vaccines and to the measures taken by most people to limit the spread of the virus. THANK YOU, EVERYBODY!
We are extremely excited to present our new chapter t-shirt design. Created by local artist Rachelle Boyd, this design features quintessential native plants that capture the spirit of the San Gabriel Mountains - canyon live oak, bush monkeyflower, mountain mahogany, paintbrush, San Gabriel manzanita, toyon, Plummer’s mariposa lily, woollypod milkweed, and Lewis’s clarkia.
Rachelle Boyd, the artist behind our new t-shirt, is an illustrator, fine artist, and outdoor adventurer based out of Southern California. We interviewed her about her love for native plants, what inspired her design, her creative process, and what she is working on now (hint: it involves monarch butterflies!).
Our t-shirt artwork competition last winter drew in seventy entries from artists all over the area. Working in a wide variety of media - from collage, to oil paint, to digital design - these artworks represent a marvelous pool of talent and passion for native plants.
