From Leah Grant : "On a table in the corner sat a vase with the most glamorous, exquisite, shimmering and delicate possession. It was magically beautiful and so soft to touch. My kindergarten teacher would only let us hold the peacock feather when we were calm, still and listening. I can remember looking at it in absolute awe and believing it to be the most valuable treasure in the world. I have layered colours, patterns and shapes to create a moment of pause. To become calm and still. Allow colour to surround you. See the details, lean in and listen to the story."
