Stranded between absurdity and calamity“ is how Autumn de Forest describes her current world. “Challenges like that drove me to create a collection that included frustration, humor, appreciation, humility, patience and grace.

As the most recognized and decorated Gen-Z painter in the world, Autumn, also a graduating high school senior this year, had any rite of passage either put on hold, or canceled altogether. Caught in the crossfire of quarantine and incongruity, Autumn has rendered a completely new collection populated with wise, witty images. 

“I have been so eager to see Stone Harbor again, and I hope old friends and new friends alike have an opportunity to see what I have expressed especially for them.”
