The Winter 2017 Collection is entitled "The Mystics." The images in this collection are all black and white so the focus is on the textures and shapes of these sublime creations, created in Love, and reflecting back to each of us the divinity and light that exists in our souls and connects us to our creator and each other. For me, the quote, "A heart that falls open at the feet of the sacred" (Mirabai Starr) encapsulates this set of flower portraits. Each image included in this collection represents souls bending towards the light; those who seek truth through stillness and contemplation; those who practice accepting what IS in the present moment, without judgment. This path is one I cling to with my whole heart, longing to attain a sense of peace in the midst of a chaotic and raging mind.
The Mystics Collection includes luxurious black and white flower photographs of blossoms such as roses, iris, hydrangea, magnolia, clematis, dahlia, and tulips. I created these fine art images in Kew Gardens, Oxford Botanic Gardens, Sissinghurst Castle Garden in England, the Portland International Rose Garden, Temple Gardens in Utah, San Francisco Botanic Gardens, Greenwhich Park Gardens, and the Lake District of England. They are similar to the style of Georgia OKeeffe and have a calm, meditative quality excellent for creating beautiful interior home decorating. They fit well in modern decor as well as vintage French farmhouse shabby chic settings. Large scale canvas and metal art can be purchased for private homes, offices, healing centers, spas, boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts, farm to table restaurants, birthing centers, and yoga retreat spaces.
