The classic arch in the sky shows us that the chinook winds are upon us. The air becomes warmer as it travels over the Rocky Mountains and touches the foothills and plains.
The Earth is a living library filled with keys of wisdom and knowledge within the plants, animals and minerals. The details of dots, lines and triangles portrayed in this image are meant to represent these aspects. The Earth is not ours to own or destroy. We are visitors for a brief moment in time.
The wild rose is a plant that provides potent medicine that can be extracted from the rose petal in the summer months or from the rose hips that are harvested in late fall and throughout the winter.
The mountain in the centre of the picture is Yamnuska which is the first Rocky Mountain you encounter when driving west on Highway 1 from Cochrane. The raven flying overhead symbolizes the magic throughout the Rocky Mountains.
We must return to things that really matter to our connection of all things seen and unseen. We must learn to walk in balance, live in reverent intimacy with nature, and create a world that we can offer with love to our children and their children.
About our Studio names & illustrations
Artist - Sarah Clark
Sarah Clark, a local artist to Cochrane, has been expressing herself artistically for most of her adult life. From working in several art departments in television and film to owning and operating a yoga studio for nearly a decade, self exploration and expression is a way of life for her.
You will find that mysticism and spirituality are strong influences in her work. What she produces carries the intention to empower and inspire others to also embrace their sacred and beautifully vulnerable nature, in turn, freely expressing with wild creativity!
We were thrilled to work with her to create our beautiful studio illustrations.
