If I had to describe myself in three words; an Intellectual; a Heretic, an Enigma. This is a collection of things that inspire, fasincate, & intrigue me...welcome to my world.
"You mustn't give your heart to a wild thing, the more you do the stronger they get, until they're strong enough to run into the woods or fly into a tree and then to a higher tree and then into the sky"

We’ve seen the astonishing frozen Sea Caves on the shore of Lake Superior. Now let’s check out a manmade winter wonderland on the other side of the continental divide. This fantastic frozen fortress is the Ice Castle located in Midway, Utah. These enchantingly photographs were taken by Salt Lake City-based photographer Ben Kuhns.
Handmade from over 20,000,000 pounds of ice, the Ice Castle is a network of carved footpaths that wind through towering glacial formations, caverns, archways, and maze-like tunnels. At night the castle is illuminated by multicolored LED lights, which serve to heighten the already mysterious and magical atmosphere.
Paper artist, illustrator and graphic designer Fideli Sundqvist grew up in a creative environment in Uppsala. Her mother is a potter and her father a religious historian. The family had a small printing space in the kitchen where Fideli would also hang her pictures to dry on a clothesline. The artistic climate of her childhood and her great interest in music were the foundations for her career choice. “During one period in my life, I was completely engrossed by album-cover art,” she says. “I particularly remember one cover that was made from a linoleum cut, it was a real eye-opener to discover that art form.”
