"Wild Fires of the Soul: A New Collection by Julie Corder"
Hi there Friends! While I'm stuck at home because of COVID-19, I've been taking the time for reflection and self-care. As an adult woman that suffers from bi-polar disorder, the past few weeks of watching the news and scrolling social media have not put me in a good place emotionally. Writing this blog has always made me pause to reflect on my accomplishments and focus on the positive things happening in my life. A lot has happened since the year of my last post and I'm here to fill you in on what's going on with Julie Corder Photography. This past year was especially difficult for us as we lost our beloved dog Tippy Toes to her struggle with cancer. She went peacefully & I feel sure that she is in doggie heaven. A few months later, we adopted another rescue dog, but this time a blue heeler mix Charley Max Corder. He is a source of great comfort to us and has lots and lots of love to give. We have been training him with puppy classes and below is his graduation photo!
I've been busy this spring with Advanced Digital Photography and Macro Photography classes taught by Dave Kelley at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Both classes were taken in the Orchid Conservatory during the Art & Orchids exhibit. I was also introduced to Lightroom, which is a phenomenal editing program available with Photoshop. All the learning and shooting was great fun and I even came out with a new collection of 5x5 metal prints "Wild Fires of the Soul". I headlined the last SouthEnd Gallery Crawl at Coffey & Thompson Art Gallery with the collection March 6th. The metal prints are available there and at Foster's Frame and Art Gallery in Huntersville, NC. Below are 3 pieces from the collection: "Into the Night", "Mother Nature's Kisses", and "Lily of Winter".
Currently, I am updating this website for print purchasing capabilities so stay tuned for the next blog announcing that launch and also a list of my upcoming events most notably Wake the Queen Performing Arts Festival at Unknown Brewery here in Charlotte August 8th, 2020 and at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden after May 11th. I want to thank you all for your continued support and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with many of you!
Much Love...Stay Safe!
