Capturing the tiny elements of nature

 My interest in nature, with all its fascinating marvels and variety, is present in most of my artwork. I am especially depicting nature’s tiny facets, such as snow crystals and insects, who are so beautiful and yet so easily overlooked. It gives me great satisfaction whenever somebody, who is enjoying my artwork, expresses that they have come to the realisation of how beautiful the world around us actually is; if we can only open our eyes and take the time to see the beauty with which we are sharing our environment. That, truly is the greatest compliment I can be paid.
