More about PhotoHaiku

As children, we connect with nature instinctively. I still recall vividly the joy I felt when encountering the beauty of flowers, plants and creatures in the world around me. As we grow older, the gap between ourselves and the natural world seems to widen, and we can easily forget that we are an integral part of that world.

As I walk out with my camera, I am re-connecting with nature and capturing images to share with you.

In my shop, as well as my Zen-inspired haiku pieces in The Haiku Collection, you will find eco friendly cards, prints and stationery that take their inspiration from hedgerows, gardens, woodlands, heritage locations and wild places. Much of my work is captured in my own county of Derbyshire - a county rich in natural beauty and heritage from the iron age to the industrial revolution.

So, what's my logo about? My logo reads 'haiku' in Japanese - a Japanese haiku is traditionally a short, meditative, three-line poem. 

My 'PhotoHaiku' concept uses my own original Japanese-style haiku poems in combination with my photographic fine art images, creating meditative pieces that aim to evoke a sense of stillness, contemplation and wellbeing, inspired by the Japanese 'Zen' Buddhist tradition. My logo acts like a 'chop', which is a kind of artist signature. Traditional haiku poems are seasonal and nature-based with three lines and the syllable pattern five-seven-five. They are not easy to write well - have a go! Follow me on Twitter where I often post haiku poems with my images - @PhotoHaikuArt.

Much of my work has Zen at its heart, whether I incorporate haiku into the designs, or simply aim to evoke this through the impression my photographs and designs bring.

My prints and homeware can look great in both period and modern interiors because of their freshness and strength of composition, colour and detail. 

My prints are archival quality, meaning they won’t fade. Prints are produced by a small family business in the UK, and mounts and backing boards are sourced locally to me in the UK and are professional quality.

My work has a very low carbon footprint; I don't have to travel far to produce my original work and I often travel by rail and bus with my camera in my backpack. My prints are professionally mounted / matted within walking distance of my home. Etsy has also introduced an offsetting system for the delivery of items, and I go on foot to my local post office when sending my in-stock items.

Cards purchased support the work of the Woodland Trust's 'Woodland Carbon' project via my print supplier and are printed on recycled card stock or carbon capture card stock. Individually purchased cards are wrapped in biodegradable cello bags - no plastic is used in packaging - you can put them in your food waste or on your compost heap. Handcrafted gift boxes are made using 100% recycled card stock, rice-paper washi tape, and natural un-dyed raffia. Bundles of cards are tied with raffia too.
