After celebrating five decades, I am no less thirsty to learn than I was 30 years ago. I love to reinvent myself. Corporate PR manager, full-time mom, food blogger, art museum copywriter, professional portrait photographer? Sure! The common thread is endless curiosity.
So what’s up next?
Photography continues to be one of the biggest joys in my life. But after a decade mastering the camera and editing I have moved away from “people” pictures. Portrait work taught me to look closely and intimately at the beauty in every person. It’s magical. Now I want to create that authentic connection with the environment.
I worry about our detachment from nature. This amazing planet depends on us being deeply mindful. My selection of prints on Etsy at AngieWindheimPhoto is meant to awaken the heart to the delights of nature. I hope the images inspire a sense of wonder and responsibility. Eventually the dream is to use my art to support wonderful conservationists like Xerces Society and sustainable gardening programs like Kindness Farm.
I am also the creative artist behind Kindness Roots. The passion project launched in 2021 as a way to lift spirits and offer connection during the Covid times. Writing “a grateful notion” in a beautiful nature-filled card was my way to spread some good vibes. Kindness Roots remains my heart and art space. I have recently expanded to include a handmade signature collection of pressed flower art. Flowers have always been my muse and this new medium is sparking some serious joy in my soul.
I continue to dig deeper into all things green gardening. This has been a lifelong passion. Now that I’m not actively mothering three little boys, I’m looking to mother nature. My two acre homestead is an ever-evolving above of love. Herbs and veggies and flowers. Trees and more trees. I want to grow and harvest it all well and responsibly. And I want to teach others how to do the same. To that end I have begun the local Master Gardener Program. A bucket list item that I am so excited to finally pursue.
Please reach out if you have any inquiries about photographic art ideas, Kindness Roots, and any other ways to learn bunches about organic and regenerative gardens.
