What started out as holiday cards to my yoga students expanded into a full-fledged artistic journey. Each piece in the collection contains elements to spark philosophical thought about the meaning of the pose or its effects.
Each piece is arrived at organically, placing a yoga pose in an artful setting that complements the emotional and philosophical aspects of the pose. First, I research the technical points of the pose to assure its accuracy, then move to researching the philosophy behind the pose and the energy or “feel” the pose provides. Colors, textures, and art mediums come naturally from this information, as does the accompanying text.
Like chocolate and peanut butter, weaving yoga and art together has been a natural fit. I began yoga in the mid 1980’s and my artistic journey has followed a long and meandering path through music, dance, and fine art.
The images below are the front covers to the cards; the text is on the back cover.
