Lone Mørch is an award-winning author, fine art photographer and creative catalyst.

A Denmark native, she has traveled the world, living and working in Europe, Asia and America—a path that has given her a profound understanding of story, change and the influence of culture on female identity. Themes of the female symbolism and archetypes inspire her artistic exploration, as she seeks to create meaningful images and narratives rooted in the sacred and sovereign feminine, in both personal and universal sense. Mørch splits her time between Europe and San Francisco.

She is the founder of Lolo’s Boudoir, San Francisco’s first fine art studio focused on women’s self-expression. She is also creator of the Sacred Journey program, a creative self-exploration program for women to bring them home to their most authentic selves.

Her photography and writing has been featured internationally in Instyle, Cosmopolitan, SF Chronicle, Huffington Post, Examiner, East Bay Express, 7×7, Daily Candy and many Danish and Nepalese magazines, newspapers and blogs. My photography has been exhibited in shows at venues in San Francisco and beyond: “Belle Du Jour” by Lost Art at the Castro Theatre, “SF Faces 2.0” at City Hall and Hotel Des Arts by SOMA ARTS, “Femmeology” at Backstage Gallery, “Dream Girls” at The Mina Dredsen Gallery, and in Vevey, Switzerland, a town square exhibit by Peter Scholl.

Her memoir, Seeing Red, tells the story of her spiritual quest sparked at the sacred Mt. Kailas in the Himalayas, and her subsequent decade in America––as wife, woman and creative spirit–trying to make sense of her own relationship to the sacred, to personal power and the sacrifices required to live an honest life attuned to one’s soul and core values. It has won the Tanenbaum Literary Award, Honorary Mention at the San Francisco Book Festival, and the Bronze Medal in the 2013 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards.

Currently, she is working on a new book and body of work, Unveiled. Based upon the past decade of photographing women, this project explores the idea of embodying and expressing the feminine in intimate and meaningful ways, across cultures. This visual and story narrative tells what the photographs alone cannot—that undressing is an act of shedding stories of doubt and cultural conditioning to stand as the sacred woman, proud in spirit and body.
