'Loving what is'
Findhorn Images is a small business, in premises at The Park, Findhorn. Itís amazing what can all be created in a small space! Some of our storage space is in Findhorn village.
One person on their own can do a lot if supported by others. Findhorn Images actually means Adriana Sjan Bijman PhotoArt.
I, Adriana, am the creative and art-directional 'working force' behind Findhorn Images. I am a photographer/graphic designer/artist and gardener, working and living since 1998 in Scotland. Where I love it! I was born at the Dutch countryside. I had my main design- & photography education at the G Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, did Interactive Multimedia Creation at the UHI in Moray and learned a lot since then. I love travelling and I lived in four other European countries before choosing the Moray coast in Scotland as my base. I like to call myself European.
For half a year I worked in Auroville in the south of India and the contact with a small paperfactory was kept; our handmade paper originates from there as a fair trade.
I am very grateful to have several other community members help me with Findhorn Images, as well as having the support of a community around me.
I greatly value my customers and equally value Nature's resources. Consequently I strive to produce a range of products local and environmental friendly. Our favourite local printer is the award winning Big Sky Printers. They use vegetable oil based inks on FSC-accreditted paper.
Together we create the products with lots of love and joy, to spread the message of beauty and preciousness of Nature.
