A Northern Zone artist, now churning out fabulous stickers

Creativity Week continues with a look at an artist who has been churning out tons of new pieces during the quarantine, including art in a very accessible new format: stickers. I love the idea of being able to add a Costa Rican hummingbird to any surface I like.

I featured Vivian Víquez, who hails from San Carlos in the Northern Zone, in February – when she told me that her goal was “ to help make species more visible and educate the public” – and have been loving her Instagram feed ever since (while I tend to be drawn to her birds, there are beetles and mammals and all kinds of creatures wandering there).

Honestly, that’s about all I have to say today. Well done, Vivian; thank you; and to anyone who needs a splash of Costa Rican color in their lives on the regular, look no further. (Check her out on Instagram.)

I’m a writer in San José, Costa Rica, on a year-long quest to share daily posts on inspiring people, places and ideas from my adopted home as a kind of tonic during a rough time in the world.
