Program and Workshop

The Artist:

Emily Paluska is a botanical artist and educator living and working in Washington, DC. She has always loved all things botanical but doesn’t have a green thumb, so she turned to paper flower making.

Guild Meeting/Program: Finding Light Amongst the Darkness

After the birth of her oldest child, Emily was desperate for an outlet that had nothing to do with her new role as a mother. She was merely existing and flailing in the depths of postpartum depression. In her darkest hour, she needed something to hold onto and making paper flowers on the floor of a nursery ended up being it. She made a paper flower every day for a year. It became a ritual, the ultimate self care. She had finally found light amongst the darkness.
