"We travel because we need to. Because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. And when we get home, home is still the same. But something in our minds has changed and that changes everything"
I draw a lot of inspiration from travel and my travels (and the beautiful discovered around the world) have greatly impacted on my life, work, and home. I wish I could travel at the drop of the hat, but that is not always feasible with time or money. I wanted to do something that kept the beautiful of the world around me at all times. I started taking intentional pictures during my travels and displaying them in my home. More than being surrounded by the beauty of the world, I found that these fine art photography prints inspired me to dream, to be creative and to live beautifully and I want to share that with as many people as possible. I launched a travel inspired print shop to do just that.
The first collection in the shop is the New York collection. The plan for the shop was inspired by walking around Central Park last summer, followed by endless hours at a very special coffee shop in the Flatiron district writing up the plan and tweaking it several times. Fast forward, ten months and I'm ready to share my dream with you.
Along with the New York collection, I am also releasing the Antoinette collection inspired by Marie Antoinette's quarters in Versailles, France. I planned to photograph a fall day in Versailles for a 2016 release, but the weather had other ideas. It rained for days while I was in France. Thankfully, I did not cancel the shoot. I shot the collection in the rain and with gray skies overhead. I am glad I did, because I cannot stop drooling over the shots. The Antoinette collection is available for a limited time. It will return to the vault in the Fall when we release our next collection.
These prints are available in a variety of sizes. They are perfect for a gift basket, building a gallery wall, in your workspace, above the fireplace, in the powder room and just about any room of your home. Several weeks ago, my friend and all round amazing photographer Debra of Mozdez shot the collection as displayed in my home. I wanted to show you how great these look in every and any space.
