Written during the strict lockdowns of living in Melbourne during COVID where it was impossible to physically connect with loved ones, Planet Hope is a celebration of loving remotely and nurturing hope to uncover strength and possibility. With the Australian landscape as the storyteller, the oil paintings of accomplished artist and acclaimed illustrator Emma Stuart link our mental health with our connection to nature. Gently broaching themes of anxiety and depression, the story tells how change can bring unexpected joy and growth. It carries a strong message of positivity to promote our connection to nature and the power we have to heal ourselves and each other.
