With bold charcoal outlines, a crisp white background and the clearest greens & yellows, the West Indies print feels like the bright edge of the Caribbean jungle. My Oma & Opa went to St. Lucia as missionaries in 1951. They had 3 children in tow, my mother, their youngest, was two and a half. I never knew them as missionaries, only as the best grandparents in the world with whom I spent as much time as possible. During their later years I began to dig through their black and white photos of St. Lucia and reinterpret them in bright watercolors & I’ve loved painting banana leaves ever since. With their straight lines and boxy shape, they’re the perfect blend of organic and architectural. It’s a random and specific thing to love but I just do & I hope you’ll also enjoy them on these personalized note cards.
