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.

Valentines Day | Healing Art - Photography Gifts by Julia K Harwood

We reap what we sow

Wow have I had a big learning curve this weekend.
After discovering many of my images used on the net without my knowing I got very indignant, how could they, etc etc. I became very stewed up and anxious. Then someone's reply to one of my rather abrupt emails made me stop and think.
If we send out, via the internet, through our words, our thoughts or our actions negativity then this is what we will get back, but if we send out love and forgiveness we will get love and forgiveness back.
I replied to the email that made me stop and take stock and discovered a very caring and thoughtful person who has actually offered to help me.
I am not going to pursue looking up "My" images as I realise that they are not "mine", but a gift that God has given me to share with others. It would be wonderful if people would put a link back to my site and acknowledge me as the photographer, but ultimately it is God who provides for me in all ways including financially.
I was once told you can't out give God and I truly believe this.
I challenge you all to try this, if someone upsets you or is nasty to you, be nice to them in response and see what happens.
Their are always angels watching over us:)

Stolen...or not?

It is with sadness that I write this post.
I have a question for you. Should an artist charge for their work?
I share my images and if I am asked I allow people to use my images in blogs etc as long as they credit the work to me and put a link back to one of my sites.
You can now see where your images are on the Internet using a reverse image search. I did one on just one of me images and found 4 pages of illegal use.
If someone stole from a shop it is shoplifting, yet they say if it is on the Internet you should expect to get it stolen. What a sad world we live in.
All I can hope is that their readers gain the benefit of Healing Art. What do you my readers think, should I try to get them taken down or credit given or should I just ignore it?
I will post the image here so at least you guys can enjoy it:)
Yes I have now added a watermark:(

What's Happening???

Hi all, sorry I have been a while between posts. We arrived safely back from our travels, but I was so exhausted that I have been mostly on bed rest. Beginning to pick up. Touring is so much different to holidaying....give me holidaying anyday!

I have not been completely idle, I have opened up a new online shop for photographic gifts. But this is a store with a difference, you can customise your products, add names or places or slogans, you can even add your own images! Great if you live in a tourist area and want to sell souveniers. If you need a particular image for a gift please just email me as I probably already have one. My email is

Where is this shop? go along and check it out. Forgot to mention great prices and postage is not exorbidant. (as in some online shops)

I have also joined a new online community for photographers. This is for all of you from rank amateurs to proffessionals. It's a place to share your images, get constructive feedback, do tutorials, learn new stuff, ask questions, get answers and hang out with other photographers and if you like you can even set up your own FREE store!

If you join, when it asks you if a friend invited you please put "yes" and when asked who put "Julia Harwood" then I can connect with you on there, look at your images and add you as a friend.

These are some of the gifts!!!
