Children’s book illustrator, fine artist, muralist, shoe designer, artistic entrepreneur — Isa Zapata’s creative career spans many mediums in the art world and her latest collection is no exception. She’s created a specialty mask line that is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face — even when it’s covered up! Made with love in Miami, these cheerful, comfortable and washable masks are created with double fabric for extra protection. The outside features tropical sublimated fabric and the lining is made of double-brushed super soft fabric and elastic ear loops. “My philosophy is that if we are going to have to wear masks for the greater good and wellbeing of society, to protect ourselves and others, we might as well make it fun,” says the artist, whose work has touched people far and wide around the world including J-Lo, Sharon Stone and Anna Farris, among many other celebrities and influencers. “We hope our masks bring in a little joy during these difficult times!” Pictured here, counterclockwise from top: “Spread Love”; “Doggie Selfie”; and “No Makeup, No Problem.” Custom orders available; Info@SoulmatesCollection.com.

Aroids include many common houseplants like monsteras, peace lilies, philodendrons, pothos and ZZ plants. While many of these tend to be “low light” indoor plants, they’re often understory plants in the wild. The International Aroid Society aims to educate the world on these wonders of Mother Nature.
