WHAT I DO
SINCE AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, I HAVE FOUND MY SERENITY, MEANING, AND SPIRITUAL QUEST IN JUST TWO PLACES – NATURE & CREATIVITY.
Being in the wilderness, walking the trails, going to mountains and visiting forests – returning to nature, again and again, has remained my greatest sources of pleasure, wisdom, soul searching and intellectual stimulation.
The order, design, aesthetics, and wisdom present in nature keep compelling me to create different depictions of nature – with words and illustrations.
On my blog, I express my interpretations of nature and my insights on creativity – as poetry and articles.
“A Word With Wilderness – Poems Inspired By American Nature” – is a collection of my 32 selected poems and illustrations.
Apart from writing, I illustrate & design surface patterns. I love the way surface prints beautify everyday objects of our lives, making them special, so often, personal. To me, the process of sketching pretty objects & little lives found in nature and seasons is pure joy. I relish the meditative process of putting together pattern elements, like solving a puzzle, piece by piece. When solved perfectly, it tells a story, with this fascinating, visual perpetual quality!
My process of writing & designing almost always starts with – photography. Not only I consider it as an excellent form of art and self-expression, but I also value photography for the reason that it lets me re-live the priceless moments spent in nature, again & again.
My creative journey so far has led me to some humbling milestones – associations & recognition from some well-known names.
When I wanted to encapsulate my passion for Nature and Creativity in a brand, at once I thought of one of the most exquisite yet curious objects of nature that I love – a Pinecone. It symbolizes Nature, Creativity, and Spirituality – in a uniquely beautiful, yet unassuming fashion.
Pine trees are believed to be among the oldest plant species on earth and thus pinecones are rather ancient representatives of nature. In many old as well as present-day cultures, pinecones are considered sacred emblems of human enlightenment and spiritual awakening. With that distinctly elegant geometrical design of spines spiraling in a perfect Fibonacci sequence in both directions, a pinecone also intrigues me as a perfect piece of creativity.
Fascinated by their charm and enigma, every now and then, I find myself picking up pinecones from under those majestic pine trees. For me, very few other things can match this simple joy! About that, here is one of my poems from my poetry book.
This website was founded and known as Lensdepictions before 2018 when I changed it to Pineconedream.
