Theodora shared with us her creative process for this series: "I need to detach myself from the heaviness that I feel. I start with handmade paper, the prettiest kind that you save for a really special project. I start by brushing solid blocks of color. As the base layer dries, I get lost in research about Greek poets (connecting with my heritage makes me feel brave). I search for wise words for modern times. When I find one that speaks to my heart, I memorize it and paint the words in the language of my ancestors, over and over in a meditative rhythm. My breath slows. My mind stops racing. For a moment I feel peace and hope."
