I am proud to display our new Spirocreations design hand drawn by my girl Amy Middleton! Amy is a very talented artist and has worked with a variety of creative mediums. If you like what you see and have a moment, please check out her portfolio here.
I also wanted to take a moment to explain what 'SPIRO' means. Spiro, is a Latin word (pronounced 'spearo')and means: to live, to breathe or to be inspired. We felt this idea summed up our creative process, as creativity brings life and is as important to our well being as breathing. In ancient times, 'inspiration' was thought to occur from God breathing (or whispering) ideas into our minds from which we would become inspired to live and create. We too feel that through the process of creating we are connected to something greater than ourselves and find that this process also reconnects us to the earth, its inhabitants, its past, present and future.
We hope that our creations can inspire you to reconnect to your own unique creativity. You are an inspiration and have much to give to the world around you!
