Hi everyone, this is Raya taking over today here on Ohh Deer πŸ€—! I'm a paper artist and I thought I'd start out by showing you a paper version of myself πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I'm a bit of a crazy plant lady πŸŒΏπŸƒπŸŒ±and tend to show that side of myself in some of my personal work πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Follow along today for a peek into my day, my studio and what I've been working on this week πŸ’•

This is me again, real one this time πŸ˜‚, over there hunched over my desk doing something tiny. See? Surrounded by my plants (you can't even see a third of them in this photo πŸ™Š). Everyday I come to my studio, make myself a coffee (priorities! Coffee is life!), check my plants (Yes, I talk to them πŸ™ŠπŸ˜‚) and then I get straight to work. I try to take advantage of all the natural light I get in here and leave answering emails for the evening 🌞

This week I've been working on a new plant for my Tiny Big Houseplant series 🌿 A Black Cardinal Philodendron (Yes, I have one, it's behind the camera 🀩) I'm a sucker for detail and work really hard on it, I tend to get into a sort of meditation state while I'm working on something 😊 I try to get as much little detail into everything I do and am always learning, practicing and trying to get a little better at what I do πŸ’• There are a lot of close-ups and process photos in my profile if you're curious :)

Here she is! My latest piece finished in her pot. The Black Cardinal Philodendron πŸƒ I started out by making a regular clay pot (you can see it in the previous photo πŸ‘€) and then changed my mind and made a mid-century cement pot and stand with a zillion tiny squares instead 🀣
