Each month, AV Flowers will be collaborating with local visual artists of all styles and medias. A print of the artist’s floral art piece will be inspiration for an exclusive bouquet designed in house. This dream team, the print and the matching bouquet, will be available for purchase during that month. Part of the proceeds will go to the partnered artist. We are so excited about this project and we know y’all are too!
So, welcome to the AV Flowers Team KJ Forman, our first partner in the Masterpiece Project. An Ottawa local, KJ is a visual artist and community advocate. You may know them as the Lucky Little Queer: @luckylittlequeer. This beautiful bouquet is inspired by KJ’s art piece featured on our social media, and purchasing this arrangement means supporting our local artist: an agreed-upon portion of each sale goes to KJ and you will receive a postcard print of the matching artwork.
We have been so honoured to be partnered with KJ for this first edition of the project. As August is Ottawa’s pride month (Happy Capital Pride!!) we were excited to work will a queer community artist and entrepreneur, because we believe that instead of capitalizing on members of the LGBT+ community, times like these especially are for working alongside members of the community and sharing in opportunities like this. Thanks, KJ!
