Local Flair

I’m excited to announced that I’ve won an instagram photography contest with Local Flair magazine of the Poconos. They’ve chosen the photo below to be on the cover of their August/September issue (the food issue) which is going to print today! I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it in print.

They also asked me to submit a few sentences about myself to go in the publication. I was happy to have the fire lit and here’s what I came up with, thanks to Kerilyn and Dave (for helping!):

Kyra Dosch-Klemer is a web designer and artist striving to expose the natural beauty and simplicity found in ordinary moments. I seek to illuminate the sublime elegance often concealed within the mundane in order to heighten awareness of the moment through the beautiful stillness and magic that is present in most moments. This is realized through emphasis on the natural state of things. I aim to honor the purity in my art as well as in life, whether it is in the music I listen to, the items in my home, or the food I feed my family. Purity, as a concept, permeates my life. You can view some of her design work at http://www.whykyra.com.

seeing::
lush green surrounding us, game of thrones episode one on my parents’ gigantic screen, a design that i am digging

tasting::
earthy yolk of a perfectly cooked over-easy egg, sweet and fresh-from-the-garden sugar snap peas, crisp white wine

hearing::
chirping baby sparrows who are nesting in the candle holder hanging nearby, distant laughter of children, Indira’s new questioning “Why”s…

smelling::
fresh sweet basil, sage, and chives

feeling::
cool breeze in warm sun, relaxed afternoon
