Five years ago, these two Charlestown women met at the Doherty Park as moms of newly minted toddlers and became fast friends on parallel journeys, starting their respective businesses. Two years ago, in the height of the pandemic, the two began dreaming up a collaboration. 

 FLOW  is a series of abstract works that lean into the spontaneity of mingling water, paint and ink on Aquabord. The artist embraces exploration and play, as well as the unpredictability of fluid mediums that create a symphony of colors, layers and marks. As we reemerge from a global pandemic that rocked routines, lives and systems in catastrophic ways, FLOW is about finding the humanity, grace and beauty in uncertainty.
