Healing Art Photography and Fine Art Gifts

I believe in the healing power of nature. If we take a moment to immerse ourselves in an image of nature we will feel rejuvenated, renewed and revived. Studies have shown that what we look at not just affects our mood, but also how we relate to others and our attention to detail. So if your feeling stressed, run down or just deserve a break, look at the images under "Healing Art" and immerse yourself in them.
My new line of photo gifts enables you to have Healing Art with you wherever you go and also to give as gifts to those who may not be into wall art.

The photogifts include watches, clocks, clothing, hip flasks,keyrings, usb sticks, phone covers, ipad covers,kindle covers, cushions, cards, stickers and so much more. Click on the tab that says Photo Gifts to see them all.

I send out an e-newsletter to anyone who wants one, including a free monthly image to use as a screensaver or desktop image to help in your healing and to lower your overall stress levels. I also let you know what I am up to and include any specials or coupons. To subscribe please send me an email at with "Subscribe" in the subject line.

"Digital Art By Julia K Harwood" Calendars by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

"Digital Art By Julia K Harwood" Calendars by Julia Harwood | Redbubble:
This is a collection of my digital art. My aim is to bring the healing of nature to you and through this I often feel drawn to create a new image from originals I have taken. These are some of these images.
The cover image is entitled River Of Life, it is the racks of Mother Earth, the water of life flowing out of them and new life being created, you see the face of a woman appearing in the swirls of the water. If you look at the rocks you will see a dark image at the centre, this is the symbol of the figure of Mother Earth.
It's free to look :))

"In Remembrance" Mounted Prints by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

"In Remembrance" Mounted Prints by Julia Harwood | Redbubble
: This image was created after I had visited the war memorial in Canberra, I wanted to show the red of the blood shed while at the same time remembering those who had and still are fighting for us. I believe that these men and woman should be remembered and honoured for what they do while at the same time I think we need to realise the futility of war and the waste of lives that accompanies it. Let’s remember but as we do, let’s strive for peace. The basis for this image was a photo of the ceiling of the war memorial and the images on the wall.
This image was born out of the pain I felt for the senselessness of this world.

"Hervey Bay" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

"Hervey Bay" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble:

I once heard a story about two ducks that were fighting, then they both swam off in different directions, they shook their feathers and then sailed on peacefully as if nothing had happened. This image reminded me of this. When things don’t go well if we can just shake out our feathers (give ourselves a mental shake anyway) and then let it go. It will make our lives a lot more peaceful and happy as well.

"Fireworks, Gold Coast, Australia" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

"Fireworks, Gold Coast, Australia" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble:
This image was taken at the end of the Gold Coast show. It was a great pyrotechnics show. The wxcotement of fireworks is something that we associate with joy, happiness,celebration and wonder. The colours exploding into the night sky as the lights cascade around us and we are totally captivated and we are able to just be.
This was taken using a tripod and as a long exposure. I find an exposure between 2 and 5 seconds is the best. I also use a cable release.

"Full Moon Rising, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

"Full Moon Rising, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia" by Julia Harwood | RedbubbleThis was the full moon as it rose on the Gold Coast last night. It is a blue moon as it was the second full moon of the month of August. The Gold Coast is full of high rise buildings all along the coast and most of the time this detracts from nature, but every now and then it works with nature to fuel our sense of the romantic and enable us to experience the beauty of nature even in amongst the city buildings of man.
The orange colour comes from the smog and/or clouds at the horizon level, the moon often appears larger and orange until it rises higher in the sky when it appears white and smaller. I love the fact that you can get a glimpse of the structure of the moon, it’s craters and lakes when the moon is full and low in the sky.

"Apollo Bay, Victoria Tee Shirt" Kids Clothes by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

Apollo Bay, Victoria Tee Shirt

This picture was taken on the road to Cape Ottway Lighthouse near Apollo Bay in Victoria. there are signs up saying “beware of drop bears”, if you look up in the trees over the road you will see these gorgeous creatures. They are a native of Australia and are often referred to as a Koala Bear, when in fact they are not related to bears at all, however they are cute and cuddly so I think it’s okay for them to have the honoury title.
The technical details: The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia.
I never get tired of seeing them, they are so cute!"Apollo Bay, Victoria Tee Shirt" Kids Clothes by Julia Harwood | Redbubble:  Available in many colours, and older kids and adults sizes as well.

"Ecletus Parrot" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble:
This beautiful bird was showing me all his colours as he prepared to take off. This one is actually tame, he talks, loves to pose for a photo and loves kisses. We came across him in Airlie Beach at the Big 4 Whitsundays Caravan Park.
