Vanessa's story

I love the idea of using the Earth to heal. This piece is all about slowing down and taking the time to enjoy the present.

As the world becomes increasingly full of distractions, it’s easier than ever to miss what’s truly important. Within the bold, expressive lines of Vanessa’s roses is a simple message: treasure the small things in life.

For Vanessa, this means admiring the famous skies of Saskatchewan, listening to the distant rumble of a late night storm, or just enjoying the easy conversation of a good friend. Whatever those moments are for you, wherever you find them, make sure you take a moment to appreciate them. Remember to stop and smell the roses.
