Every astrology design in my Flower of Life Sacred Geometry collection has been created as a meditation on that particular sign.
I set an intention to create images that would share the highest and most inspirational vibration of each sign’s planetary aspects, known characteristics and the essence of its element (earth, fire, air or water).
The colors and patterns of each sign developed organically as I tuned into the energy that flowed through my muse. My eyes, hands and photoshop were merely tools expressing and translating the vibratory meanings that downloaded as the images you can see .
I also intended that these images could be used as visual meditation tools to amplify the positive aspects of an individual’s astrological alignments and in particular, to set specific, personal intentions that will activate the energy of the desired outcome every time he or she touches, or acknowledges, that intention through visual and emotional alignment.

I’m really getting into preparing design collections to exhibit at Surtex in May and am pleased that so many of my existing artworks can be updated and reworked into coordinating designs, patterns, silhouettes and borders! Also am definitely appreciating my graphic design and print production background. Always knew it was an advantage, but it really does give me a big edge for editing and adapting art for the licensing business.
Below are a few images of the creative process (Note: My favorite part, inherent in every step, is actually feeling the magic of nature’s energy as I’m working with the images)!
Here’s the original photo that all of my Orchid Cascade designs are based on:
“Photo taken by Debra Cortese at 2008 Orchid Festival
atFairchild Tropical Botanic Garden”
One of the first designs was ‘Orchid Cascades Reflection’ which has become
one of my top selling Cortese bag designs:
The last image shows the latest adaptations of Orchid Cascades – for fabrics,
gift wrap, journals, mugs, calendars, cards. I’d love to have it on a shower curtain!

I’ve been working with a few friends who are members of the South Florida Bromeliad Society on new designs that feature bromeliads done in my nature’s energy style. The designs will be licensed for t-shirts, hats, magnets, aprons, tote bags and quite a few other products that can then be used for promoting the organization, bromeliads and also for fundraising. This is my favorite kind of art project because I get to create nature art, use my graphic design skills, see my work on all sorts of products and get paid for creating something I love doing!!! Oh and did I mention collaborating with great clients too?
Here are two samples of what we’re working on:
