Lotus Flower

One of my first designs, our Lotus flower card has a bright red cover, with a lacy flower against a turquoise window.

Open the card to an intricate 3-D scene of one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet. The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. Untouched by the mud, the lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind, and represents long life, health, honor and good luck.

The inspiration for this delicate, graceful card comes from a man I saw on a bike ride in Kandal, Cambodia. He was chest-deep in a lake, harvesting flowers for a ceremony. The colors, the smell and the heat of that day remain strong in my memory.

The Lotus flower has personal meaning for me, and is now our company logo.
