THE ART OF THE JOURNEY
I launched my BLOOM Portraits over a year ago, after a particularly trying time which led me to healing. We all have to go through a bit of pain & sadness from time to time, and it's how we go through that, heal and spring to life again that makes it a beautiful process.
So once again we all find ourselves in a very difficult time across the globe right now. All of our plans for ourselves, our families, our business, our year have ground to a halt. But the one thing I have witnessed is that spring is still BLOOMING outside of our windows, life and nature go on.
For me, there will be no BLOOM Portraits this spring. No celebrating people's life, their wins or new chapters. No gorgeous, colorful blooms bursting through my viewfinder or surrounding my clients. But we are all still BLOOMING. We WILL get through this, and hopefully be stronger and better for it. And while it still doesn't erase all of the terrible things about this situation or the loss of life and trauma, there's still some hope to be found.
I'm releasing these prints to inspire people to cultivate the lives that they dream of as well as bring a bit of spring cheer into their homes. These images give me hope for the future and I hope they will inspire you and give you some peace during this difficult time and the uncertainty that the last year has brought to all. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and know that we will all step into that light and BLOOM very soon.
Brand new posters have just launched in the shop, exclusively for the BLOOM Collection! These posters are printed on a thick, matte-finish paper with a 1.5 inch border and are ready to frame (not included).
Commercial and high-volume orders are available for designers, architects and artwork consultants. Prints are perfect for hotels, restaurants, offices and other spaces that are inspired by the faraway lands and locations in my image collections.
