What is In the Spirit?
Created from Gail Russell photographs, this greeting card set focuses on inspirational pictures and uplifting images. Each boxed set comes with six, blank gift cards, featuring photographs of my travels and expressions from my imagination.
I love working with color because of the role it plays in our daily lives. It’s a powerful tool that helps us transmit ideas, learn, organize information, and alter our moods – which is what I strive to achieve with each and every Gail Russell photograph.
My hope with my In the Spirit gift cards, is to use the energy from uplifting images to foster well-being and awareness of all life. And not just our own lives and those around us. But the life found in plants, animals, and our planet as a whole. May these inspirational images bring you harmony and balance while connecting with others.

This image was created
for the book “Crystal Healing”
by Katrina Raphaell
“For as long as I have been making images,
I have wondered how the internal essence of something looks…..
what would the Spirit of something look like?
This image is part of a body of work called,
“Organic Mandalas”, images of specific geographical areas,
earth formations, crystals and stones are used.
These images for meditation are made here and there
throughout my photo travels.
Later in the darkroom, or on the computer, they are assembled in a symmetrical form.
When I tried them with Quartz Crystals,
a whole new world opened up”.
Gail Russell’s Greeting Card Shop
Gail Russell is a photographic artist and designer living in Taos, New Mexico. She has a studio gallery where she exhibits and sells her photographic work along with her popular line of shawls, scarves and leg warmers. In 2008, she was named a Taos Living Master for her photography; in 2013 she was honored as one of the Remarkable Women of Taos.
Gail studied at Albright Knox School of Fine Art, Pratt Institute, and The School of Visual Arts. In 1968, she received her first camera and has never put it down.
In 1978 Gail moved to the Taos area and has exhibited her work widely and continuously since then. Her artistic foundation was informed, deepened, and sustained over decades by the relationships that she has maintained with Native elders and their extended families. In 1987, with Lakota Grandmother Nellie Red Owl, Gail founded the Adopt-a-Grandparent Program which for fifteen years brought support to elders and their families on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
Gail Russell’s art embodies a positive, uplifting spirit. The photographs reflect the beauty of nature, spiritual awareness, Native American life and culture, holy shrines and spiritual architecture, botanicals, the human form, landscapes and cloudscapes, love, and sometimes Maya, her macaw.
