I’ve always felt a strong pull toward nature as a force for growth, healing, and spiritual renewal. Seven years ago, while in the midst of great personal loss and grief, I followed my instincts and took weekly nature walks. Whether in rain, snow, or frigid temperatures, I walked religiously with a Nikon camera in my hand and my dear friend Beth at my side. It was the best thing I could have done.
The results of those nature excursions were thousands of floral images and an unmistakable peace and happiness I never expected to take root as strongly as it did. So I went a step further and printed my favorite images as large as I could, up to 30” x 45” in some cases, and hung them throughout my home.
The initial healing of those walks only intensified as my surroundings started to come alive with each portrait on my wall. Something beautiful was blossoming in me and I wanted to share it. Specifically, I envisioned sharing these large portraits in places where people heal physically, emotionally or spiritually.
It’s taken some time, but I am so pleased to announce the following placements in organizations aligned with my mission:
- Unpotted Event, Esoteric, Virginia Beach, 7-9 p.m., Nov. 3, 2017
- Stockley Gardens Arts Festival, Oct. 21-22, 2017
- Simon Family Jewish Community Center, Exhibition in the Leon Family Art Gallery, Oct. 24-Nov. 17, 2016
- Ashley & Kuzma Physical Therapy, Erie, PA
- Beach Eye Care, Virginia Beach, VA
- Virginia Oncology Associates, Norfolk, VA
My goal for 2017 is to continue the expansion of Visual Clarity, and extend the peace and well-being these flowers convey in as many homes, businesses, organizations, and clinical settings where people go to heal. I also envision installments in commercial business settings where natural-themed artwork can promote a powerful boost to employee morale in the workplace.
