The story behind this card: I used to be a middle school teacher, and I really wanted to design a card to honor my students who would be brave and share a part of their identity with me and other classmates or teachers. I particularly wanted to create a card in honor of my students who came out as trans during my teaching years.
I had the imagery down, I knew I wanted it to be these butterflies flying against a dark background, but I wrote and rewrote the message of this card, trying to simplify everything I wanted them to hear. In the end, it really all boiled down to this statement, that I’m proud of who you are. And no matter who we are, I think that’s a message that a lot of us need to hear, for whatever parts of our identity that makes us, US.

About the Artist:
I'm Brigida, a CHamoru and multiracial artist based in Seattle, Washington. Nature's like family to me. Creating art about nature is how I feel most connected to the ancestral values of my CHamoru heritage, and to the Pacific Northwest culture in which I was raised. It's why I create products that express a kinship with nature, so that we can all experience a sense of belonging and wonder.
