Oh The Magic!

Spring is my favourite time of year – watching the new growth, seeing changes every day in the trees and gardens, listening to the chorus of birds by day and frogs by night.

It’s as if all of nature is bubbling with joy.

I love this photo I took recently. Such soft colours and delicate shapes. The promise of beauty unfolding.

Photo Frenzy

Over the weekend, I had the joy and pleasure of being near Lake Ontario. I did a lot of walking, and took photos galore. I’ll share some of my more memorable ones in the weeks to come. For now, here are two that speak to me of spring and new beginnings.

Finding Inspiration

What inspires you? As an artist and designer, I find inspiration in the world around me – patterns, colours, shapes, textures. Often in nature.

Is this photo simply an image of decaying leaves and a tree on the forest floor? Or does it offer inspiration for a new design?

Inspiring shapes, patterns and textures!

Beauty, and inspiration, are in the eye of the beholder 🙂
