Photographer. Poet. Dreamer.

Sometimes my heart beats so loudly, I cannot hear anything else.

I cherish being alive and am unapologetic about who I am.
I live to create.

And in the end, we were all just humans... drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

    "Lotus is a photographer, poet, dreamer, mother, blogger and Lightroom teacher. She says “I cherish being alive and am unapologetic about who I am. I live to create” and this lively attitude comes through in her photography.

    Lotus’s Flickr stream is full of high quality images. Sometimes they are fun, mostly they are beautiful, sometimes they are confronting, always they are thoughtful and inspiring.

    Whilst there is a wide variety of image types to be found in her work, I especially love her self-portraits, which are prevalent in her stream. Perhaps this is because portraiture is an area of photography I find so hard, or perhaps because I certainly am not confident enough to photograph myself too much, or perhaps because I just find them so well executed, so beautiful and oftentimes so emotionally challenging and confronting.

    Lotus often pairs her images with her own writing or a carefully selected quote, these add immensely to the impact of her images."

    "I kinda met Lotus Carroll's works through Thomas Hawk. Once I saw her works I was amazed at her ability to capture life as it happens. Her ability to display One's self and their world through the camera is tops. She has the ability to make a story and do it very well with a click which many of Us never get right. Lotus Carroll, your a favorite of mine and I think I say this for many others. We love you! =o)"

    "To whom it may concern:

    I ordered my live action 'Lotus' figure several weeks ago but have yet to receive it. Perhaps it was lost in shipping, or is on back-order - but any status you could provide would be very much appreciated.

    As I'm sure you can understand I've been eagerly anticipating its arrival since first seeing the advertisements on Flickr and placing my order.

    This cute, ironic, funny and sassy figure is sure to capture the hearts and minds of people everywhere, and is certain to be in great demand. I'm convinced that Lotus Carroll (c) is 'The Next Big Thing'!

    Thanking you in advance... -Mars"

    "Haven't written many testimonials and I don't even know Lotus, but I'm inspired by her prolific work and fresh energy. I also love the titles she associates with her images; they add much depth to an already interesting view. Bravo !"
