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 jules@juliaharwood.com with "Subscribe" in the subject line.

Doistic (Taoistic) Art

I was recently approached by a Chinese newspaper as they wanted to do an interview with me. I was very curious as to why, I don't speak Chinese and don't know a lot of Chinese. I was very flattered and also extremely curious, so I asked him when he arrived.


He explained that my images and especially my "Healing Art" Philosophy  mirrored Daoism, also known as Taoism. I was very impressed and thought I needed to know more about this.


Along with Confucianism, “Daoism”  is one of the two great indigenous philosophical traditions of China.


Taoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy which promotes living simply and in harmony with nature, and going with the flow.


The Yin-Yang symbol exemplifies this view. The black represents the Yin the white represents the Yang. Yin is also associated with weakness and passivity and Yang with strength and activity. The symbol shows that within the Yang there exists the Yin and vice versa. All nature is the balance between the two.


I was amazed when I read this as I have always associated with the Yin Yang and have worn one around my neck for the last 15 years.


I have found along with many others that the peace and harmony in nature can be felt by us if we stop and take the time just to be.



I hope that as you view my images you will take the time to do just that, take time to just BE.
