Outdoor Metal Wall Art – Beach House Style!

Flora and fauna are the subject of two prints I photographed. This dragonfly with hearts was photographed at Sandy Lake in Nova Scotia. It hovered on this stalk of grass almost as if it was posing! I love this image so much that I enlarged and printed it on aluminum. The metal adds a depth and luminosity that is so different from a print on paper.

Queen Anne’s Lace is considered to be an invasive weed, but I love this flower. It’s so light and airy. This photo was taken in Margaretsville, Nova Scotia. I isolated the bloom from a large snowy white bank of them.

Chakra series note cards

I am happy to be making my series of Chakra quilts available on blank note cards. Photographs of my art quilts are mounted on heavy weight card stock with matching envelope. 

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel of light. These spinning centres of vitality move energy up through our bodies keeping our physical, spiritual, and emotional selves in harmony.

Each chakra is appliqued in the colours and symbols associated with that area of the body.
