The Phoenix is a symbol of strength and rebirth as legend tells us this mythological creature rises from its ashes as a new entity. The glowing golds and fiery reds feel hot and alive – would make a perfect card to give someone going through a challenging time to wish them strength, love and support.

This is a detail of a commissioned series of Phoenix scarves for a very special client completed last year. The tremendous detail involved nearly threw my back out, but it was worth it because in the end, I was so happy how they turned out!
