Hello, beautiful mind!

You are. Because,
you are interested in a rather subtle, beautiful, omnipresent, and yet surprisingly often overlooked aspect of our lives – Nature.
I am so happy that you are here! :)
I am Gyaneshwari Dave. The artist, poet and author behind Pineconedream.
Day in, day out, no matter what we are after…essentially, in one way or another, aren’t we just longing for –  Joy, Beauty or Wisdom to be present in our lives to call them fulfilled? I believe, that when one starts paying attention to nature, they discover all of these there. In their eternal, purest and profound most forms.
Read my story.


What I Do


Illustration/Surface Pattern Design

There are always tiny stories happening somewhere in nature…filled with wonder and delight. My illustrations are inspired by them.
I choose to design surface patterns with my art because a surface pattern can tell the viewer these stories perpetually. I also find the process of  arranging my artwork as motifs and seeing a pattern emerge slowly, truly meditative.
In the end, I love how having these patterns on everyday objects give them meaning, and make them special.

Nature Writings & Poetry

Effortless poise of the of mountain age-old peaks, joyful enthusiasm of wildflowers swinging carefree in the wind, patient wisdom of the unshakable rocks, self–contented, prayerful peace of trees – doesn’t everything in nature has its own special, subtle and discerning message for us?
I often express my interpretations of nature and explore our relationship with her – in poems and articles on my Blog.
“A Word With Wilderness: Poems Inspired By American Nature”  is a compilation of 32 of my nature poems, each accompanied by my illustrations. Read reviews & Find out more.


Picture Quotes: Mindfulness & Nature

Enlightened minds have this rare ability to express the most profound, life-changing wisdom in the simplest of words. That is why I love discovering and pondering over these witty quotes, especially, quotes about mindfulness and the way they can be related to nature.
I choose the best mindfulness quotes I come across and combine them with my nature photography to create these thought-provoking picture quotes.

Kind Words

I realize from Gyaneshwari that there is so much good in this world, all we have to do is look and find it. As long as we can keep developing our own relationship with nature, we will all be ok. We just have to focus on it. I will gift her book to people I love.
