Home Grown: Healing the Body is a collaboration between visual artist Quiara Capellan and Aya Paper Co. Quiara is an interdisciplinary artist from NYC who creates signature “doodle peeps” to represent people she sees everyday. Whether it’s a friend, cousin, archival celebrity photo, or even a stranger on the street, each figure is created with intention.
For this special collection, she was inspired by her own experience of reclaiming and healing the body using natural herbs that can be found, grown, and used right at home. There are three figures in the collection, each available in three different tones of black and brown skin. On the back of each print, Quiara identifies the herbs drawn, their benefits for the body, and how they can be prepared.
