Erin on "Let it Bloom"

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), Uprise artist Erin Lynn Welsh partners with Taylor Patterson of Fox Fodder Farm and Brittany Asch of Brrch to create “Let it Bloom”, a project dedicated to celebrating the diverse group of women in their lives who have battled breast cancer. The result of a life-long collaboration between the artists, “Let it Bloom” features an arrangement of florals designed by Patterson and Asch, depicted through paintings by Welsh. The resulting paintings are available for purchase through Uprise Art, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated by Erin Lynn Welsh and Uprise Art to the Breast Cancer research, educational programs and survivor support organizations.

“Through the depiction of each loved one by an individual flower, the project highlights the women in a personal manner, rather than condensing them into a simple title or color.”

“For me, the garden and flowers represent that diversity. It is not only about being represented by the color pink.”
