"This piece is an ephemeral artwork created from real flowers, mindfully assembled to honour the graceful flamingo. I created this artwork in honour of the beautiful women out there who have fought their way through adversity and deserve to be recognised for the beauty of the balance they created again. Wear that crown with dignity and pride!"
Peta Jay is an ephemeral artist from Brisbane who works with flowers and foliage to create one-of-a-kind artworks to share her love of nature and inspire others to connect with nature. She likes to repurpose nature pieces she forages on walks, finding inspiration in these unique pieces to typically create artworks that honour wildlife and animals.
Nature was such a soothing and healing space in Peta's own PTSD journey following her 17-year policing career, that she studied to become a certified nature-based therapist and mindfulness educator. Peta founded her business 'Into the Wild Nature Therapy' to help other people heal, grow and thrive.
