The following is a process note for Melissa Kate MacIntosh.

The aesthetic of Kate’s¬†portrait was drawn from the colors in her photograph. The blues, greens and yellows gave it a serene, fresh feeling. This reminded me of Spring and I tried to incorporate this concept through the floral design of her mandala. I also felt it seemed appropriate given the optimism of her quote, and the newness of her current relationship.

Thank you for your contribution, Kate!
