Simply Images: Photography as meditation
Being mindful is something we can do at any time, and I find this comes into play when I am out and about with my camera. Exploring with the intention of creating photographs encourages me to pay greater attention to my surroundings. It helps me to see the details of the environment we live in and really spend time in each moment that I have. Yoga can have a positive influence on creativity and contemplative photography or other art forms can act as a type of meditation. The pictures on this website are all my own and are part of my progress towards learning to see the world more clearly.
More recently I have been exploring watercolour painting and find myself increasingly absorbed in painting from my photographs. As well as subjects from nature, I love to photograph and paint my greyhounds, who provide endless subject matter for my brush.
I now have a range of greetings cards created using my photographs and watercolours available from Love from the Artist. Find our more here or view my current selection of cards here. I am also able to take commissions to paint your pet’s portrait, with more information available here.
