Thought spaces :: More than just cards.

Art cards: A perfect symbiosis of a carefully selected image with a surface whose emptiness is pure invitation. An invitation to bring thought pictures into word pictures or into symbolic sketches or into nothing but meaningful silence.

In any case, the picture becomes part of the message and so it is important to me that the card motifs, as well as the personal thoughts and emotions, may break out of the mainstream.

Carried by the desire to give the individual thoughts of the writers an outstanding image partner, I have developed a card set from my pool of contemplative and artistic photography.

Each set contains 6 wonderful, unique art print cards.

The following carefully assembled sets are at your disposal:
