Name: ART32 – Back to Nature
Artist: Laura-Kate Draws
This design diverts gratitude to nature and the hope and peace many have found in reconnecting with nature, finding a love of gardening, foraging or simply finding solace in a daily walk. Lockdown meant things slowed down and with less cars on the road, the environment was able to flourish, the air was cleaner, there were more birds in the trees, butterflies and bees in gardens. With everyone exploring the outdoors a little more, nature connected us, helped us to de-stress and find joy in simplicity.
