About

Botanicals in a fresh light

Welcome to my shop.

I have loved all aspects of gardening since I was a small child. It is one of my favorite creative outlets. I love all aspects of gardening, including making a habitat for various yard pets...chipmunks, squirrels, birds, butterflies... etc. Although, I am not so very happy that all the peonies were leveled to the ground one spring night this year. I wonder who is responsible for that.... the deer??? bunnies???

I got back into photography when designing a web site for a wonderful boutique. Little did I know that I was going to be responsible for providing the photography too. So I brushed off my art school photography skills. I had to purchase a macro lens for shooting the jewelry. Then I thought, oh I'll just take some photos of the flowers from my garden and sunroom. Then... a couple of people said I should sell these photos. I thought, "Great, I'll do that". Little did I know how this was going to evolve.

You just can't go into business with five images, so a year later I was ready to go public with a portfolio of images. It has become quite a journey. A dear friend of mine said I just had to participate in the Annapolis Arts and Crafts Fair. I thought, "Great, I'll do that". That meant buying a big tent and designing and having a sign fabricated... If you asked me a year ago where this venture was going, I would never ever have guessed that I would be doing trunk sales, art fairs, charity events and now Etsy!

It has been a joy to share these images with others. People are surprised that they are actually photos. They say they appear to be paintings. I work on each image for hours digitally enhancing and transforming the flowers into my artistic vision. Then I make the archival giclée prints on gorgeous fine art paper.

One of the greatest joys in being a creative person is the people I meet along the way.

my best regards,

Sarah Hollander
