In celebration of Women’s History Month, we have teamed up with two amazing artists to advocate self care and wellness for all, as well as spread awareness for women’s rights and achievements. Both artists were asked to create a design that resonates with their vision of self care and wellness. We also want to dedicate this campaign to the hard-working women fighting for change in all spaces for decisions to be made. These limited-edition products are now available at The Nice Plant.
The Nice Plant is all about finding and creating the space to thrive. This Women’s History Month is a special time for us not only to celebrate the historic accomplishments of women but also to create a significant achievement of our own, as we are a women-run organization! We are proud of our team and this symbolic achievement we have set for ourselves.
About the Artists
Los Angeles, CA
LA native, Lauren Levi, is an extraordinary artist like no other. Levi focuses on the beauty of melanin and incorporates bright colors and patterns into her art. Her talent is a gift that inspires all of us to not only think bigger but choose to be better.
Most of Levi’s art is not only influenced by her experience as a black woman and a single mother, but also by black activism, feminism, and hip hop. With many challenging moments, she found art not only as a calling towards happiness but also the answer to helping inspire people.
With all the talent that she possesses, it can definitely be exhausting. To help her stay centered, she affirms to herself there is a reason for her and her gifts to be a service to help heal humanity. (We undeniably need her energy!) Levi’s vision of self care and wellness is staying authentic and true to yourself. A bit of poetic and powerful advice we all can preach on! She believes “there is something so liberating about having the audacity to live and speak your truth.”
Behind the design:
This visionary artist lives in color! Her art speaks for itself with bold color combinations and trippy patterns–it is absolutely a masterpiece. As a plant mom herself, she envisioned the design to reflect the energy that plants possess–very bright sun-like.
“The yellow is for sunlight
The pink is for a pink aura which reflects your heart chakra being open and allowing yourself to show up in the world in a loving way.
The green is for the richness of foliage
The blue is for the sky on a sunny day
The orange is my son's favorite color so I try to incorporate it in all my art.”
The passion and drive that she possesses truly make her a one-of-kind artist.
Santa Monica, CA
Santa Monica artist, Leah Kirsch has created a brand that prioritizes inclusivity, individuality, and empowering women. During her time at Fordham University Kirsch had started a side project that suddenly became a life-changing passion for her and all women ….
Her devotion to art and fashion had started from a young age. She dedicates her influence and appreciation to her creative and talented mother. As her interests grew over time, she immediately knew this was something she wanted to do with her life.
Though it’s important to spend quality time with our friends and family, it’s also important to spend time to resonate with yourself. To Kirsch, her idea of self care and wellness is all about splurging time for yourself. Whether it’s working out, meditating, or doing a skincare routine, one of the important things we’ve learned from her is to make yourself a priority!
Behind the design:
When collaborating on the design, Kirsh envisioned meaningful statements that were relatable and positive.
The design itself truly reflects Kirsch’s personality and her artistic taste.
