Hello, and welcome!
Wild Clover is rooted in love and respect for our Earth and all her various living beings, ecosystems, biodiversity, wonders, and mysteries. The diversity and the natural balance in and of Nature reflects great wisdom, natural recycling, efficiency, sustainability, and regeneration. Nature is a time-tested reference and model for art, creativity, health, beauty, wonder, balance, and sanity.
We are in a tragic period for species, ecosystems, health, nature, and all life. We have lost a lot. I read recently that one in five species now face extinction on Earth. We grieve, on many fronts, on many levels. Perhaps we are at the point of no return. Perhaps there is no hope. Or, perhaps, it is all that is left. Regardless of these ideas, thoughts, semantics–there are countless good people and other beings living in good and better ways. Even though love doesn’t stop destruction or extinctions, it is immense. It is profound. Love and compassion are reason enough to live each moment and day with a tender awareness of the preciousness and uniqueness of life.
And each life is unique and of value, and much is still hopeful mystery! It is reason enough to give to each day what love, kindness, decency, honesty, humor, joy, peace, goodness you can honestly create, contribute, nurture, sponsor, and risk. Breathe, trust your intuition, listen to your gut, and the quiet voice of knowing within…find the space and quiet where you can hear it. Care for your body, honor it. Be brave enough to live your life creatively, and pair it with critical thinking.
I am first and foremost, an artist. Creativity is my medium. Thank you for supporting me–and through your support, you facilitate me being able to do what I do best and make a living at it. I wish that for us all. May our currency be ethical and equitable. May our time be well spent and mutually respected for diverse and myriad expressions. While I am an artist at core, I am also at core, a being who wishes to share, assist, and contribute to health, balance, equity, and positive growth. Both creativity and service are present at root level in Wild Clover Designs.
Co-creative collaboration, independent assignments, and commission requests are welcome.
Peace and long life,
CS Sherin of Wild Clover Designs
