Oxytocin


I created this piece for a friend who wanted to gift it to their friend. I find that art is able to connect people from all cultures and backgrounds, which is why I love creating my pieces and gifting them. We don’t often times need words to convey art, which is why I enjoy visual pieces as I myself am not great with words. This artwork is of the hormone oxytocin, often known for being a “happy hormone.” I wanted to convey happiness through color and nature by painting flowers in acrylic around the molecule which was drawn with pen.

 


Florence is Chinese, was born in Colorado but spent 12 years of her life growing up in Bangkok, Thailand. From a young age, she has always been in awe of art and how a blank piece of paper can be turned into something so beautiful. Art has always been a way for her to view the world in a different perspective, and a tool for her to express herself. She loves mixed-media, and her most recent endeavors have been to merge her love for art and her passion for medicine as one.
