Each Mini Original drawing starts among the pages of Erica's sketchbook as a quick graphite drawing. From there each page of paper is hand torn to create the perfect size paper for each drawing. To add a little extra fun to each drawing small pools of watercolor are added to the paper forming fun shapes that are unique to each piece. The sketches are then transferred and hand drawn in graphite to creating a series of original drawings that are similar but each have their own individual personality.
The Monstera is a tropical species of plant found among the tropical forests in South Mexico and continuing south to panama. It has since become introduced to many other tropical areas like Hawaii. The monstera has becoming widely popular as a house plant and with the increased popularity also comes an interesting take on their symbolism. In eastern culture they can symbolize longevity, respect and honor. In contract in Western culture they can represent suffocation because of their fast growing vines and aerial roots.
