“The real world is much smaller than the imaginary” - Friedrich Nietzsche
“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing” - Camille Pissarro
“There are places in this world that are neither here nor there, neither up nor down, neither real nor imaginary...” - Thomas Moore
"And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you, to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.” - Unknown
Soaring Anchor Designs, is the artist name for an independent digital artist, designer, inventor, and maker of things!
I try and draw inspiration from everything around me, while always accompanied by my best friend, my co-worker, my sidekick, my everything...my furry, Belgian son.*
(*As of November 2017, my furry baby has become an angel. He is forever with me in spirit and sends me signs daily to let me know he is always near. He continues to inspire my journey to explore, see things from a different perspective and to see the beauty that truly is everywhere.) - See our newest collection here Varick Ridge. A collection of fine art, photography, designs, quotes and more that are inspired by nature, travel and exploring everyday from a new perspective. New designs are uploaded frequently, so please check back often, to see the expanding collection.)
I have a deep love of all animals and nature, and that tends to influence my work. It could be anything on any given day, that steers the direction of the design…music, feelings or emotions, whether it be obvious or more abstract. I look to see the beauty in everything, and not just visually, so I never try and limit what inspires me and always try to see things from a new perspective.
Wherever I draw this inspiration from, I want each viewer to have their own interpretation or make a connection with the design, in their own way.
The best ideas can come to you in dreams, either by day or night, and that is where these "dream-inspired designs" are usually born. The designs are snapshots from my imagination, and always tend to portray light and darkness, both literally and figuratively.
Hopefully, the images I create can inspire others to dream or may spark their imagination in some positive way.
The style is an ever-evolving, eclectic blend, of photo manipulations, photography, design and more. I'm always learning and trying to experiment with new styles and techniques. You will find a collection of modern, surreal, minimal, whimsical, melancholy, images and more, that transport the viewer into another world."
