It’s All Good In The Blue Ridge

Words we thought we’d never say…It’s official – Bowen Imagery has moved to North Carolina! It’s been a crazy journey since leaving St Pete three years ago with lots of learning opportunities involved. Our art and life continues to blossom along the journey, and for that we are so very grateful.

And now after a year and a half of cocooning and coming back to ourselves…transmuting and transitioning into a wholly new unity and vibration (side note: try this unity vibration kombucha beer now that we found here in WNC)…we are boldly pressing on. The energy of this place is inspiring, and the beauty truly magnificent.

Why Asheville and WNC?

East coast business. Endless mountains and trails to hike and bike. Funky city bustling with artists and musicians. Lots of land to buy! And moderate four seasons with a looooooong growing season. Speaking of growing, wild raspberries on our driveway dazzled our tongues throughout the summer. And about 40 minutes from our house is Graveyard Fields and Falls. A stunning mountainous region right off the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile marker 418. Park your car, grab your bucket and head to the fields where thousands of blueberries grow wild — each hiker can fill a gallon bucket. We hit the end of the season but still made out with enough berries to make some delicious pancakes. Here are some pics from that ever-so-perfect day.

Enjoy some of our recent snaps below from our first few months in the area.

Thanks for checking in…catch you on the trail soon!
