Creating Sanctuary

Creating Sanctuary is a practical and spiritual guide to help readers cultivate a new relationship with the earth, reduce stress, and promote health and happiness by living more naturally. 

This book delves deeply into the healing properties of herbs and flowers, so I designed a radiating mandala collaged out of some of the book's most prominent plants for this cover. Shopping for fresh plants in NY during the winter was a challenge, but in the end each element was sourced, photographed and collaged to create a lush, symmetrical treatment. I was also inspired to create a small herb garden in my kitchen! Thanks, Jessi!
